Protecting Our Oceans: September Prayer Intention of Pope Francis

2 September 2019 | General Interest

We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month's intention: Protecting Our Oceans.

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

     

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.

-Pope Francis, September 2019
