The Future of the Very Young: December Prayer Intention of Pope Francis

13 December 2019 | Australia

We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month's intention: The Future of the Very Young.

Let us pray that every country decides to take necessary measures to make the future of children a priority, especially the future of children who are suffering today.

      

Every child who is marginalized, abused, abandoned, without schooling, or without medical care, is a cry that rises up to God.
In each of them is Christ, who came to our world as a defenseless child; it is Christ who looks at us through the eyes of each of these children.
Let us pray that every country decides to take necessary measures to make the future of children a priority, especially the future of children who are suffering today.
