Pope's Prayer Intentions for November

Pope Francis' Prayer Intention for November focuses on Christians living in Asia. In the video to accompany this intention (see below), He remarks that 'the most striking feature' of Asia is its variety of people who are 'heirs ancient cultures, religions and traditions'. The pontiff notes that while 'the Church is a minority' in Asia, it should lead the way in promoting 'dialogue among religions and cultures'. Pope Francis begins a six-day pastoral visit to Bangladesh and Myanmar later this month.

Prayer Intention: Christians in Asia

Pope Francis prays:

"That Christians in Asia, bearing witness to the Gospel in word and deed, may promote dialogue, peace, and mutual understanding, especially with those of other religions."
