Pope Francis has approved new statutes guiding the Vatican foundation that oversees the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network. Made public on 8 July, the new statutes recognize the history of the initiative and its mission. The Secretariat for the Economy now holds reponsibility for final approval of budgets and the appointment of a sole auditor, tasks previously entrusted to the Secretariat of State.

The Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network has the mission of mobilizing Catholics through prayer and action in response to the challenges facing humanity and the mission of the Church. These challenges are presented in the form of prayer intentions entrusted by the Pope to the entire Church.

The Pope Video is an official global initiative to disseminate the Holy Father’s monthly intentions. It is carried out by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer).

The Foundation’s mission is inscribed in the dynamic of the Heart of Jesus, a mission of compassion for the world. The initiative was founded in 1844 as the Apostleship of Prayer. It is present in 89 countries and is made up of more than 22 million Catholics.
