The video of Pope Francis with his prayer intention for September has already been made public. During this month, the Pontiff asks Catholics to pray for those "living on the margins of society".
The Pope denounces the widespread indifference. He puts the emphasis on the media, where the situation in which more than 700 million people live is not denounced. The "throwaway culture", says Francis, "dominates our lives, our cities, our way of life".
In the face of this situation, the Holy Father asks that "we stop making invisible those who are on the margins of society, whether for reasons of povertydependencies, mental illnesses or handicaps". In this way, we can move from a culture of discarding to a "culture of welcoming".
Therefore, the Pope asks that "we pray that people who live on the margins of society, in subhuman living conditions, may not be forgotten by institutions and may never be discarded".
