Pope Francis' sixth prayer intentions video has once again captured another challenge that humanity faces with his intent in finding solidarity for the elderly, sick and marginalized. 

A 2014 study conducted by the United Nations World Urbanization found that about 12 percent of the global population are seniors (age 60 and older).

As time progresses and the world’s population continues to age, global homelessness, hunger and displacement are becoming a growing concern.

The Pope is promoting awareness to a population that is largely sidelined by a majority on an international level.
