• Pope Francis’ prayer intention for July is for Respect for Indigenous Peoples: That indigenous peoples, whose identity and very existence are threatened, will be shown due respect.
    The Apostleship of Prayer has produced the Pope’s Video on this prayer intention.
    Representative of Indigenous People:
    Speaking for indigenous peoples, I ask that our ways of life may be respected, our rights and our traditions. Will you listen to me?
    Pope Francis:
    I want to be a spokesman for the deepest longings of indigenous peoples. And I want you to add your voice to mine in a heartfelt prayer that all will respect indigenous peoples, threatened in their identity and even in their existence.
