Pope Francis’ December 2019 Intention

The Future of the Very Young
That every country take the measures necessary to prioritize the future of the very young, especially those who are suffering.

Prayer

Father of Goodness,
the birth of your Son Jesus opens a new time to the world,
a time of hope and peace.
We pray for children and adolescents,
especially those who live discouraged by their difficulties and sufferings,
who do not find opportunities to develop, feel enthusiasm for the future,
nor the support they need to have a decent life.
Help us to give them a bright future,
embracing with love the children and adolescents of today,
so they can transform the world that you have created
in a space of life and fraternity among all.
Our Father…
