Pope's prayer intention for March: Persecuted Christians
Comment Email Print

Pope Francis' prayer intention for March is 'Support for Persecuted Christians: That persecuted Christians may be supported by the prayers and material help of the whole Church.'

The Apostleship of Prayer has produced the Pope's Video on this prayer intention, with the help of Aid to the Church in Need.

The full text of the Pope's video is below:

How many people are being persecuted because of their faith, forced to abandon their homes, their places of worship, their lands, their loved ones!

They are persecuted and killed because they are Christians. Those who persecute them make no distinction between the religious communities to which they belong.

I ask you: how many of you pray for persecuted Christians?

Do it with me, that they may be supported by the prayers and material help of all the Churches and communities.
