Pope Francis
Pray for Pope Francis that
the Holy Spirit will guide him

We must all pray for our Pope, Francis the 1st, and be loyal to him. Pope Francis is the voice of God for all humanity, he who listens to the Pope listens to God. Only by listening can peace and harmony be restored, this is why the Pope is called 'The Vicar of Christ on Earth'. The Holy Spirit is the soul of the family of God, the Catholic Church, and he who is with Pope Francis, is with Christ, and he who is not with him is in error.

His responsibility as head of the Church surpasses all human wisdom, and which Divine assistance is indispensable. This assistance from God comes to him from the intermediary of our daily prayers for him. The cross which weighs on his shoulders is very heavy and it is the duty of every Catholic to help him carry it. This is why we must all pray for him and love him.

True Catholics see in his authority as Pope a great gift from Heaven and many today do not believe in his infallibility as Pope when he speaks as Head of the Universal Church. They think they have the right to refute his works, to blame him, and to mock him,  'He who despises him, despises Christ' (Luke 10:16). It is a duty to listen to him in what he commands, counsels, or desires. For whoever listens to him 'Listens to Christ'. - By Philip Illsley.
