Pope Francis’ prayer intention for September 2018 is “Young People in Africa.” The theme is promoted throughout the world by the Pope’s Worldwide, Prayer Network.
As he does each month, the Holy Father released a video on the theme for the month.
The Full Text of the Video:
Africa is a wealthy continent, and its greatest, most valuable resource is its young people.
They should be able to choose between letting themselves be overcome by difficulty or transforming the difficulty into an opportunity.
The most effective way to help them in this choice is to invest in their education.
If young people don’t have the possibility of education, what future can they have?
Let us pray that young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries.
