Pope Francis' Message for Dec. 10 Prayer Wave

Today, Pope Francis issued a video message in support of the Dec. 10 "wave of prayer" to end global hunger. Caritas Internationalis is calling on people around the world to pray tomorrow, at noon local time. This prayer wave across time zones will mark the beginning of a campaign for Roman Catholic-related charities, called "One Human Family, Food for All." In his video,

 Pope Francis gave his the campaign his blessing and said that people across the globe must come together to end the scourge of hunger. “I invite all the institutions of the world, the church, each of us, as one single human family, to give a voice to all those who suffer silently from hunger, so that this voice becomes a road which can shake the world," the pope says in the video.

Lutheran Campus Ministry, Wesley Foundation, Hillel at UNM, Aquinas Newman Center Peace and Social Justice Commision and Bread New Mexico invite you to join us today to offer our own prayers and reflections in solidarity with the call from Pope Francis. We will gather at Noon at Luther House, 1805 Las Lomas Rd. NE, University of New Mexico campus, Albuquerque. You are invited to bring your own prayers and reflections. Please stay after the conclusion of our prayers to share a bowl of soup.
