The Holy Father’s prayer intention for April is “For Those who have Responsibility in Economic matters.”
The full text of the message:
The economy cannot attempt only to increase profits by reducing the workforce and thereby adding to the ranks of the excluded.
It must follow the path marked out by business leaders, politicians, thinkers, and leaders in society who place the human person in first place and do everything possible to ensure that there are opportunities of dignified work.
Let us raise our voices together, asking that economists may have the courage to reject an economy of exclusion and know how to open new paths.
The Pope’s intention is presented each month by The Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer), which addresses the challenges facing humanity and assists the mission of the Church.
