The Maritime World: Pope's Prayer Intention for August 2020

Let us pray for all those who work and live from the sea, among them sailors, fishermen and their families.

The life of sailors or fishermen and their families is very difficult.
Sometimes they are victims of forced labor or are left behind in distant ports.
The competition of industrial fishing and the problem of pollution make their work even more complicated.
Without the people of the sea, many parts of the world would starve.
Let us pray for all those who work and live from the sea, among them sailors, fishermen and their families.

—Pope Francis, August 2020
