Pope Francis' Prayer Intentions for May:
Christians in Africa
In the month of May, Pope Francis asks that our prayer intentions be for:
Christians in Africa: That Christians in Africa, in imitation of the Merciful Jesus, may give prophetic witness to reconciliation, justice and peace.
Pope Francis has called for peace in Africa between Christians and Muslims. He asks that they not forget about human dignity and that they say no to hatred, revenge and violence. He reminds Christians that "those who claim to believe in God must also be men and women of peace." and that they are not to act out violence in God's name.
So, with this in mind we pray that like the Merciful Jesus, Christians in Africa will "give prophetic witness reconciliation, justice and peace.
