Pope Francis’prayer intention for November: To witness the Gospel in Asia
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis has released a video message accompanying his monthly prayer intention for November 2017. This month’s intention is for Evangelization: To witness to the Gospel in Asia. 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. Source
The text of the video message reads: The most striking feature of Asia is the variety of its peoples who are heirs of ancient cultures, religions and traditions. On this continent where the Church is a minority, the challenges are intense. We must promote dialogue among religions and cultures. Let us pray that Christians in Asia may promote dialogue, that peace and mutual understanding, especially with those of other religions. The Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network of the Apostleship of Prayer developed the "Pope Video" initiative to assist in the worldwide dissemination of monthly intentions of the Holy Father in relation to the challenges facing humanity.
