Pope Francis’s Prayer intention for November 2021 is for the 10% of the world’s population who now suffer from depression or other mental illness.
“Overwork and work-related stress cause many people to experience extreme exhaustion — mental, emotional, affective, and physical exhaustion,” the pope said.
“Let us not forget that, along with the indispensable psychological counseling, which is useful and effective,” Jesus’ words can help us and others to find solace: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
Among the many depressed now too are many young people who are worried about climate change, and the seeming inability of those in charge of the world to get a persuasive grip of the problem
The Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network of the Apostleship of Prayer has developed “The Pope Video” initiative, to which anyone can connect on the Internet.
