In his prayer intention for the month of November 2018, Pope Francis says: " We can speak with splendid words, but if there is no peace in our heart, there will be no peace in the world."
It has become the custom of Pope Francis to release a video message detailing his prayer intention for each month.
The full text of his intention is below:
We all want peace. It is desired above all by those who suffer its absence.
We can speak with splendid words, but if there is no peace in our heart, there will be no peace in the world.
With zero violence and 100 percent tenderness, let us build the evangelical peace that excludes no one.
Let us pray together that the language of love and dialogue may always prevail over the language of conflict.
The Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network of the Apostleship of Prayer developed "The Pope Video" initiative to assist in the worldwide dissemination of monthly intentions of the Holy Father in relation to the challenges facing humanity.
