Pope Francis invites us, with the intention of this month, to put the human person at the center of economic decisions.

Let us pray that those in charge of finance will work with governments to regulate the financial sphere and protect citizens from its dangers.

In his prayer intention for May, the Holy Father asks that “finance be a form of service, and an instrument to serve people and to take care for our common home” and he prays that those responsible for the world of finance will protect those most in need.
