Praying with the Pope in February
Listen to the Migrants' Cries
We pray that the cries of our migrant brothers and sisters, victims of criminal trafficking, may be heard and considered.
Pope Francis, February 2020
Three ways of putting your prayers into action this month
- Investigate and learn about the work of the Santa Marta group, an international partnership between the church and law-enforcement agencies, that works to combat human trafficking and modern slavery.
- Think and pray about ways in which you or your parish, or worshipping community, might be able to support the work of JRS - the Jesuit Refugee Service, whose mission is to serve, accompany and advocate for refugees and displaced people. not least those held in detention. They offer several fundraising and volunteering opportunities.
- In a parish prayer-group or activity group, take the Pope’s Intention for this month for your prayer, reflecting on it together, considering how the rest of your parish might join in praying for the Pope’s intention. Be open to hearing a call to action.
