Christians in Africa, which is part of “The Pope Video” series promoted by the Vatican, was released Thursday, May 4. That Christians in Africa, in imitation of the Merciful Jesus, may give prophetic witness to reconciliation, justice, and peace. Africa is a continent full of life, with a great cultural and religious patrimony. We cannot abandon it. Let us join our voices to the voice of the African peoples. Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer): www.popesprayer.net

Every month we will see a new two-minute video from Pope Francis with his intentions and a motivating message. 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:

When we look at Africa, we see much more than its great natural richness.
We see its joie de vivre, and above all, we see grounds for hope in Africa’s rich intellectual, cultural and religious heritage.
But we cannot fail to see the fratricidal wars decimating peoples and destroying these natural and cultural resources.
Let us join with our brothers and sisters of this great continent, and pray together that Christians in Africa, in imitation of the Merciful Jesus, may give prophetic witness to reconciliation, justice, and peace.
