Starting from the month of January, Pope Francis will entrust to a video-message the traditional prayer intentions of the month. It is an initiative with no precedents of the Apostolate of Prayer which is going to begin with a message on January 6.
The initiative is linked to the Jubilee, according to the Jesuit Father Frederic Fornos, international director of the Apostolate of Prayers. “During this Jubilee of Mercy – the Father Fornos explains to the Vatican Radio – in order to raise awareness on the challenges posed by humanity to the mission of the Church, we want to present them with a video of the Pope: a high-quality video made by a team of talented and creative people from every corner of the world. Every video will be issued in ten languages”. The Pope will speak in his mother tongue: Spanish.
