Our Lady, mother of all, has an open heart for all human needs. May we, too, be sensitive and committed to lessen social hardship and injustice.

The Intention of Pope Francis

Workers and the Unemployed.

That all workers may receive respect and protection of their rights, and that the unemployed may receive the opportunity to contribute to the common good.
