Pope Francis 2016 prayer intentions to be released on social media

  • Written by:

The Holy Father’s 2016 prayer intention will be released today January 6th. Pope Francis’ prayer intentions will be released on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

The success of this is to be achieved by the Vatican Television Centre and the Jesuit-run global prayer network that have handled the release of the papal Yearly prayer intentions to Catholics. The Jesuit-run outreach has been giving Catholics the Pope’s monthly prayer intentions since 1890.

“Often people are inundated with so much bad news that they might feel helpless, but to pray together with Pope Francis for these challenges will us help a lot,” Jesuit Father Frederic Fornos told Vatican Radio on January 4.

While the Pope will speak in Spanish, the videos will have subtitles for a total of 10 languages, Fr Fornos said.

Pope Francis’ general prayer intentions for 2016 will include: greater care for creation; more support for families in difficulty; just compensation for small farmers; greater respect for women and indigenous peoples; helping sports contribute to peace; encouraging journalists to respect truth and be more ethical; greater support for countries that take in refugees; and an end to the use of child soldiers.
