“Let us pray that all workers may receive respect and protection of their rights, and that the unemployed may receive the opportunity to contribute to the common good.”
This is the invitation of Pope Francis in the video presentation of his intention of prayer for the month of October 2017, published by the Pope’s World Network of Prayer.
“We should always remember,” Francis urges, “the dignity and rights of those who work, condemn situations in which that dignity and those rights are violated, and help to ensure authentic progress by man and society.”
“The video of the pope”, directed by Fr. Frédéric Fornos, SJ, is available in 10 languages across all social media: YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.
On January 8, the Pope sent an invitation to join his World Prayer Network: “I would like to invite you to join the Pope’s Global Prayer Network, which also disseminates my prayer intentions through social networks every month to the whole Church,” he said. This is how the apostolate of prayer is promoted and communion is made to grow. ”
