Pope Francis is in the country right now for a 5 day visit, and he's bound to leave for Vatican tomorrow morning. I cannot put into words how thankful I am to God for bringing this man here in our beloved country. I can't help but cry whenever I watch him on TV hugging and kissing the children. His humility and compassion is truly admirable. He has the gift of touching the hearts of the people just by his presence. He certainly brought hope to every Filipino.
I am a baptized Catholic but a Christian by heart. But with Pope Francis, I learned that religion doesn't matter. What really matters is our relationship with God. The pope said in an interview with an Italian newspaper, “I believe in God, not in a Catholic God. There is no Catholic God, there is God and I believe in Jesus Christ, his incarnation.” I am blown away! Really, religion just differs in the way we worship God, but we are all serving One God so we are all the same.
Thank you, Jesus for Pope Francis. Bless this man's heart. Give him strength, wisdom and grace to be able to touch more lives.
Thank you, Pope Francis. I thank God for your life. You have touched not just our hearts, but our lives as well by strengthening our faith. Thank you from the bottom of every Filipinos heart. I will always include you in my prayers. We love you Lolo Kiko! You are always welcome here in the Philippines. Viva il Papa! ♥
A yellow raincoat will always remind me of you. :)
