“The Pope Video” (2): Care for Creation (February 2016)

by | Feb 6, 2016 | Church, News, Pope

The second video of “The Pope Video” series, an initiative promoted by the Vatican, was released Friday, February 5. In it, the Holy Father explains his intentions for universal prayer and evangelization. Every month we will see a new two-minute video from Pope Francis with his intentions and a motivating message. The video is in Spanish, with optional subtitles in English and French.

The project is an initiative of Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer), that aims to spread the Pope’s monthly intentions on the challenges facing Humanity.

The Pope tells us in this video:

Believers and unbelievers agree that the Earth is our common heritage, the fruits of which should benefit everyone. However, what is happening in the world we live in?

The relationship between poverty and the fragility of the planet requires another way of managing the economy and measuring progress, conceiving a new way of living.

Because we need a change that unites us all. Free from the slavery of consumerism.

This month I make a special request: that we may take good care of creation —a gift freely given— cultivating and protecting it for future generations. Caring our Common House.
