Pope Francis’s Prayer Intention for February

Pope Francis’s Prayer Intention for February 2018

Say “No” to Corruption
This month we are asked to  consider what we understand by corruption.  Most of us would consider that corruption is an abuse of power for personal gain. But corruption isn’t just about accepting bribes or channelling money for dishonest reasons. Corruption can be about the mishandling of our world’s resources with one eye on gain and with no thought for the poorest in our world or for the planet itself. This month we are asked to join in Pope Francis’s prayer intention that “That those who have material, political or spiritual power may resist any lure of corruption.”
