Pope’s September Prayer Intention: Protect Oceans and Seas

‘Let us pray this month that politicians, scientists, and economists work together to protect the world’s seas and oceans.’

Pope Francis on August 31, 2019, released a video message accompanying his prayer intention for September, which this month is for the oceans and seas: that “politicians, scientists, and economists work together to protect the world’s seas and oceans.”

The Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network of the Apostleship of Prayer developed “The Pope Video” initiative to assist in the worldwide dissemination of monthly intentions of the Holy Father in relation to the challenges facing humanity.

The full text of his intention is below:

Oceans contain the bulk of our planet’s water supply, and also most of the immense variety of living creatures, many of them are threatened for various reasons.

Creation is a project of love given by God to humanity.

Our solidarity with the “common home” is born from our faith.

Let us pray this month that politicians, scientists, and economists work together to protect the world’s seas and oceans.
