The Prayer Intention of Pope Francis this month, February 2018, is: 'That those who have material, political or spiritual power may resist any lure of corruption.'
In his video, the Holy Father says:
"What is at the root of slavery, unemployment, and disregard for nature and goods held in common?
Corruption, a process of death that feeds the culture of death.
Because the thirst for power and possessions knows no limits.
Corruption is not countered with silence.
We must speak about it, denounce its evils, and try to understand it so as to show our resolve to make mercy reign over meanness, beauty over nothingness.
Let us pray that those who have material, political or spiritual power may resist any lure of corruption."
