November Intentions of Pope Francis

 Lonely people. That all who suffer loneliness may experience the closeness of God and the support of others.

“The most serious of the evils that afflict the world these days are youth unemployment and the loneliness of the old. The old need care and companionship; the young need work and hope but have neither one nor the other, and the problem is they don’t even look for them anymore. They have been crushed by the present. You tell me: can you live crashed under the weight of the present? Without a memory of the past and without the desire to look ahead to the future by building something, a future, a family? Can you go on like this? This, to me, is the most urgent problem that the Church is facing.”

Mentors of seminarians and religious.  That young seminarians and religious may have wise and well-formed mentors.
