You are the best “Vicarius Filii Dei”

I want to go to Rome and meet you in… person. You are the best “Vicarius Filii Dei”. Read more “You are the best “Vicarius Filii Dei””
I hope this won’t remain a dream!
I have heard of and seen many people who use their phones to take photos with Pope Francis. I have migrated to Hamburg, Germany, and I would like, even just once, to go to St. Peter’s Square and also take… a photo of the Pope, or even better, a photo next to him. I hope this won’t remain a dream! Read more “I hope this won’t remain a dream!”
with his books showed us the face of Jesus
A hug to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, who, with his books showed us the face of Jesus, and an embrace to Pope Francis, who holds him by the hand, bringing him among us.
Pope Francis was inspired by a passage
I was in Rome on vacation and I went to St. Peter’s Square for the Angelus. Pope Francis was inspired by a passage from the Gospel of Matthew in which Peter rebukes Jesus when He reveals to the disciples that… He will have to suffer, be killed, and be resurrected in Jerusalem. Jesus reproaches Peter, saying that he does not think according to God. The Pope was clear: “Always, even today, the temptation is to follow a Christ without a cross, rather, to teach God the right path. But Jesus reminds us that His way is the way of love and there is no true love without Christ’s self-sacrifice.” Clear words of the Holy Father that are sometimes good to remember.

I often try to follow his example
Right when Pope Francis became the Holy Pontiff, he said a phrase that struck me a lot: How nice if everyone can say, “Today I have made a gesture of love toward others.” I often try to follow his example,… but at the same time, I would like others to do so too. Read more “I often try to follow his example”
Your blessing will give me
I lost my job at the age of 55 and feel the difficulty in having to start over. Holy Father, please say a little prayer for me. Your blessing will give me that needed push to move forward with optimism.… Thank you for all your loving help. Read more “Your blessing will give me”
His spontaneity, affection, love,
I see such tenderness on the face of Pope Francis whenever he’s near children! His spontaneity, affection, love, and consideration make him like a grandfather with his favorite grandchild. He knows very well that they are the future. A Holy… Father who is always close to his beloved people, even those very young, fills my heart with joy. We hope that the Lord will watch over this Pope who seeks his lost sheep, even the smallest ones who are more likely to lose themselves. Read more “His spontaneity, affection, love,”
Pope Francis inspires me
Ever since I became a teacher, I’ve been practicing and educating my pupils to be honest at all times. Pope Francis inspires me more after knowing him from news articles and especially when he came to the Philippines. I am… one of the millions of people who follow him. His being compassionate enlightened me to touch other lives, especially my pupils. Seeing him in My Pope magazine is a miracle to me, [and enables me] to connect with the Holy Father and to spread God’s love. Read more “Pope Francis inspires me”
Then came Pope Francis
I have always been a diligent Catholic, but I eventually saw the Church’s teachings as strict and unyielding, leaving me no room to grow spiritually. While I still loved being a Catholic, I yearned for something— someone—that would make the… Church’s teachings feel less antiquated and more relevant to the times. Then came Pope Francis. He is such a breath of fresh air! I love his humility, and the fact that he is fighting against climate change. I also like that he wants women to play bigger roles not just in the workplace, but also in the Church. I am one with him in the belief that we are all God’s children, regardless of our various religious faiths. Pope Francis has rekindled my faith in the Church. He inspires me to love the Lord and Mama Mary even more. Read more “Then came Pope Francis”
