Pope Francis shared his first monthly prayer intention on social media Wednesday, with the focus of the prayer being on “interfaith unity.”
The pope began his brief video, which was broadcast on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube, by suggesting that because the majority of the world’s inhabitants identify with some religion, this “should lead to a dialogue among religions. We should not stop praying for it and collaborating with those who think differently.”
“Many think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways. In this crowd, in this range of religions, there is only one certainty that we have for all: we are all children of God,” Pope Francis continued in his minute-and-a-half video.
