Pope Francis has asked Catholics around the world to pray in November for people suffering from depression or burnout, that they might find the support they need.
He made the appeal in his November prayer intention, shared with an accompanying video on Nov. 3.
“We pray that people who suffer from depression or burnout will find support and a light that opens them up to life,” reads the prayer intention, promoted by the Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network.
In the video explaining his prayer intention, Pope Francis said that “sadness, apathy, and spiritual tiredness [can] end up dominating people’s lives.”
