Vatican City, Jul 3, 2018 / 10:08 am
In his latest prayer video, Pope Francis asked Catholics to dedicate the month of July to giving a spiritual gift to their pastors by praying for them, especially the priests who are tired or lonely.
"The tiredness of priests...Do you know how often I think about it?"
This is the opening line of Pope Francis' newest prayer video, published July 3 and dedicated to his intention for the month.
As the video flashes scenes of priests working in difficult situations, including war and disaster relief, Francis speaks in his native Spanish, saying, "priests, with their virtues and defects, work in many different areas."
