The Holy Father’s prayer intention for the month of February is “For a generous welcome of the victims of human trafficking, enforced prostitution, and violence.” On the 8th February 2019 we will celebrate the World Day of Prayer against Human Trafficking, in memory of Saint Josephine Bakhita! The Migrants & Refugees Section has participated in the planning of the Vigil, promoted by the networks of Talitha Kum throughout the whole world. This year’s theme is “Together Against Human Trafficking”.
Please join us in prayer by downloading the materials available on the website of this initiative <l ink> , including the prayer to Saint Josephine Bakhita which Pope Francis will lead at the Angelus on Sunday 10 February 2019. On the website of the Migrants & Refugees Section < link >, you can also find the new Pastoral Orientations on Human Trafficking .
