Pope Francis' October prayer intentions: evangelizing Asia and ending human trafficking

Pope Francis will focus his prayers during October on two causes that are dear to his heart: ending human trafficking and spreading Christianity in Asia. His universal prayer intention is "that human trafficking, the modern form of slavery, may be eradicated.� Earlier this year, the Vatican held an international conference to share and develop ways to combat the problem. The Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences has made the issue a centerpiece of its work.
