Pope Francis' message for One Human Family, Food for All


The message from Pope Francis about the day of prayer and awareness for "One Human Family, Food for All."

The prayer from for "One Human Family, Food for All"

O God, you entrusted to us the fruits of all creation
so that we might care for the earth and be
nourished with its bounty.
You sent us your Son to share our very flesh and
blood and to teach us your Law of Love. Through
His death and resurrection, we have been formed
into one human family.
Jesus showed great concern for those who had no
food – even transforming five loaves and two fish
into a banquet that served five thousand and
many more.
We come before you, O God, conscious of our
faults and failures, but full of hope, to share food
with all members in this global family.
Through your wisdom, inspire leaders of government
and of business, as well as all the world’s
citizens, to find just, and charitable solutions to
end hunger by assuring that all people enjoy the
right to food.
Thus we pray, O God, that when we present ourselves
for Divine Judgment, we can proclaim ourselves
as “One Human Family” with “Food for All”.
