Pope Francis' November prayer intentions: Help for the countries that welcome refugees

The pope's monthly prayer intention for November is that countries that welcome refugees be helped in their endeavor.  More than 4,000 people have died this year in the Mediterranean alone, and in the last hours, according to witnesses, 200 people have died in two separate shipwrecks. During his trip to Lesbos, in Greece, Pope Francis said the refugee crisis is the single "greatest humanitarian disaster since World War II.â? JRB/AG CTV -FL -BN Up:MB #Papafrancisco
