Pope Francis asks to pray in January to prevent fighting with other religions


Through the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network, Pope Francis asks Catholics to pray for fraternity in January, “so that the Lord may give us the grace to live in full fellowship with our brothers and sisters of other religions and not fight each other, praying for one another, and opening ourselves to all.”

Pope Francis recalled that “when we pray to God following Jesus, we come together as brothers and sisters with those who pray according to other cultures, other traditions, and other beliefs. We are brothers and sisters who pray.”

 

“Fraternity leads us to open ourselves to the Father of all and to see in the other a brother or sister, to share our lives or to support, to love, and to know each other,” adds the pope.

 

He explains that “the Church values God’s action in other religions, without forgetting that for us Christians, the wellspring of human dignity and fraternity, is in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
