(Vatican, February 5, 2016) Today Pope Francis released a video asking people of the world to unite with him in prayer for the care of creation.

February’s Pope Video focuses on ecology and the care of creation. Rev. Frédéric Fornos, a Jesuit priest and international director of the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network said, “The prayer intention for February comes at a crucial time for humanity, addressing an area where we urgently need to make changes. The Pope asks us to unite in respect for creation and to act to preserve the natural world for future generations. We need a conversation that brings us together, because we are all affected by environmental challenges, especially the poor and displaced.”
