The Pope Video - February 2021 - For women who are victims of violence Feb 1st, 2021
Fr David Stewart SJ, Director of The Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network writes: "With the arrival of February and the approach of Ash Wednesday and Lent, Pope Francis has once again asked us to pray with him about a matter of grave concern in our contemporary world.
Anxious about the pandemic, and rightly concerned about just sharing of the new life-saving vaccines with the world's poorest, we might forget this continuing epidemic, of violence against women, to which there has so far been no effective inoculation.
Now the Pope asks us to become, no less, the solution - by taking this concern into our own prayers and hearts this month. A desire for repentance could be among our Lenten prayers. And the powerful creative imagery of this month's Video will help us in this heartfelt desire, with the Pope."
