· The Pope's video message ·
“The family is one of the most precious assets of humanity, but is it not perhaps the most vulnerable?”. Pope Francis asked this in a video message published Thursday, 10 March, on the internet site of the Apostleship of prayer, www.apmej.org.
Speaking in Spanish, the Pontiff talks about his universal intention for the month of March, dedicate to families in difficulty. “When the family is not protected but exposed to economic hardship, health problems or any other kind of difficulty, the children grow up in an environment of sadness”, the Pope explained, as a montage of vulnerable images of family life scrolls across the screen. “I want to share with you and with Jesus”, the Pope concluded, “ my intention for this month: that families in need receive necessary support and that children grow up in a healthy and peaceful environment”. The video is available with subtitles in six languages at www.thepopevideo.org)
