Young People in Africa: September Prayer Intention of Pope Francis

We are all invited to join with Pope Francis and his worldwide prayer network in praying this month's intention: Young People in Africa.

Pope Francis' Intentions for 2018: English (PDF); en español (PDF)

Post your prayer in the Baggot Street Chapel

Let us pray that young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries.

Text of the September 2018 video:

'Africa is a wealthy continent, and its greatest, most valuable resource is its young people.
They should be able to choose between letting themselves be overcome by difficulty or transforming the difficulty into an opportunity.
The most effective way to help them in this choice is to invest in their education.
If young people don't have the possibility of education, what future can they have?
Let us pray that young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries'
