April Pope Video – Fundamental rights

Apr 6, 2021 | Pope Video

In many parts of the world, defending fundamental human rights can imply risk. This is true not only under dictatorial regimes, but also in some democracies undergoing a crisis. As Francis says, it requires courage to “actively” combat “poverty, inequality, the lack of work, land and housing, and the denial of social and labor rights.” This month, the Pope invites us to support those who willingly accept the consequences of defending fundamental rights in places where it isn’t easy, so that “they may see their sacrifice and their work bear abundant fruit.” Let us not leave them on their own. Pray, and share these words of the Pope so that those valiant people may feel accompanied in their work.

We pray that religious women and men, and seminarians grow in their own vocations through their human, pastoral, spiritual and community formation, leading them to be credible witnesses to the Gospel.
