Wednesday 3 August 2016, by SIGNIS

Rome, August, 3rd 2016 (Vatican Radio). Pope Francis released his monthly video message on his universal prayer intentions for August where he speaks of his desire that sports may “build a culture of encounter” and a “world of peace”.

A few days before the Rio Olympic Games start, the Pope decided to focus his prayers intentions on sports.

You can watch the video below:

“Sports, a culture of encounter. Sports make it possible to build a culture of encounter among everyone for a world of peace. I dream of sports as the practice of human dignity, turned into a vehicle of fraternity. Do we exercise together this prayer intention? That sports may be an opportunity for friendly encounters between people and may contribute to peace in the world.”

The Pope Video is a global initiative developed by the Pope World Prayer Network (Apostleship of Prayer) to assist in the dissemination of monthly intentions of the Holy Father related to the challenges facing humanity.
