Pope’s February prayer intention: Say ‘No’ to corruption

Thursday 1 February 2018

Fr Blazek SJ, Pope’s Worldwide Prayer Network US and Canada

The abuse of power for personal benefit, corruption, is a problem across all human history. Bribery is often involved. One hears sadly of corrupt narcotics officers working for the mob, or of favours granted at various places of employment for a kickback, or at high levels of government for a public works contract. The Holy Father has taken a firm stand against such immoral and illegal activity, asking us to pray that those tempted to corruption may be delivered from illicit enticements.
