Young People in Africa: September Prayer Intention of Pope Francis
Join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network
Back to all news
We will use our gifts as educators in all our ministries to assist those in need of support in their learning.(Chapter Statement)
We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month's intention: Young People in Africa.
Let us pray that young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries.
Text of the September 2018 video:
'Africa is a wealthy continent, and its greatest, most valuable resource is its young people. They should be able to choose between letting themselves be overcome by difficulty or transforming the difficulty into an opportunity. The most effective way to help them in this choice is to invest in their education. If young people don't have the possibility of education, what future can they have? Let us pray that young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries.'
We invite you to post a prayer or reflection in our prayer space
