Dear christians of the world,
As I write these words, his holiness, Pope Francis I, is approaching the end of his trip that stated in Cuba and moved forward to the United States. As the greatest evangelist among 1.2 billion Catholics, he has delivered the good news to millions of Christians. His message of love and peace has touched the hearts of Catholics and non-Catholics alike, including many who consider themselves as atheists.
Pope Francis was the first Pope to speak to a joint session of congress. In his 50-minute address, he asserted that the "Golden Rule reminds us of our responsibility to protect and defend human life at every stage of its development." He spoke a few words that contained a richness of unspoken meanings, the preservation of the fetus, caring for the elderly and the sick, and an end to the death penalty. He did not have to mention each one by name; everyone knew what he was talking about.
When Pope Francis visited St. Patrick’s Church, a short distance from the Capitol, he addressed the plight of the homeless.
Wherever he went, he always stopped to lay his hand on the heads of the children.
Pope Francis has left a lifetime mark on many, those who heard him, those who saw him and those who touched him. And then there are those who have read about his ministry. Let us not forget those who watched on television and the internet the papal planting of spiritual seeds that will bloom for years to come.
Let us unite our prayers to the Lord, asking that the Pope will be able to do many more such trips in other countries so many more souls will be touched by the Catholic faith.
May the grace of God shine on all of you.
