Day 3: Today we pray for those in transit, traveling to a safer place than where they came. Internally displaced people travel to a camp in the Democratic Republic of Congo. There are over 4 million people internally displaced in the #DRC, including almost half a million newly displaced in the last year. 📸 Credit: Peter Balleis SJ — Jesuit Refugee Service

Today, Feb. 14, we also honor #FrederickDouglass on the 200th anniversary of his birth. #Douglass was born into slavery in 1818, but the exact date of his birth is unknown (not uncommon for those enslaved), so he chose February 14 as his birthday. He later freed himself from slavery and became a social reformer, abolitionist and writer.

“American #Catholics have shown a lack of moral consciousness on the issue of race,” said #Jesuit Bishop George Murry, bishop of #Youngstown, #Ohio. “If we are to be true to the principles on which our country was founded and the principles on which our faith is based, we must do much more.”
.
Murry, who serves as chairman of the @usccb Ad Hoc Committee Against Racism, recently spoke at St. Peter's Catholic Church in Charlotte, North Carolina, a Jesuit parish. Read more about his talk at the link in our bio.

From @popesprayerusa: #PopeFrancis' prayer intentions video for #February: that those who have material, political or spiritual #power may resist any lure of #corruption. “Corruption, a process of death that feeds the culture of death. Because the thirst for power and possessions knows no limits,” Pope Francis said. “We must speak about it, denounce its evils, and try to understand it so as to show our resolve to make mercy reign over meanness, beauty over nothingness.”

Today, on the feast of St. Francis de ‎Sales, patron saint of #journalists, Pope Francis released his message in advance of #WorldCommunicationsDay 2018, which will be celebrated this year on May 13. Pope Francis adapted this prayer from the "Prayer of St. Francis" for the occasion.
.
The Holy ‎Father's message for World ‎Communications Day is traditionally published in conjunction with the feast of St. Francis de ‎Sales to allow bishops' conferences, diocesan offices and ‎communications ‎organizations sufficient time to prepare audiovisual and other materials for national ‎and local ‎celebrations.

From @popesprayerusa: #PopeFrancis' prayer intentions video for #January: that Christians, and other religious minorities in #Asian countries, may be able to practice their faith in full freedom. “Let us pray that all religions, also those that are #minorities, are given the freedom that sometimes today on the Asian continent, they are lacking.”
