Pope Francis asks for people "to commit to the common good" in December intentions

In his video message with prayer intentions for the month of December, Pope Francis says that "the world needs volunteers and organizations committed to seeking the common good." He believes that "commitment" is a word "many today would like to erase.''

The Pope urged people to become "artisans of mercy" and to work "with the people you serve."

Pope Francis points out that the "work of volunteer not-for-profit organizations is much more effective when they collaborate with each other." And he calls for volunteer organizations to "find people willing to...ceaselessly seek new paths of international cooperation."
