Pope Francis! What a wonderful name!! After the seagull found its hangout spot on the Sistine Chapel smokestack we should have guessed that our new pope would choose a name that was associated with a saint who had many feathered friends!
“But that night, he (the pope) had a dream. He saw the great Church of St. John Lateran falling, crumbling into dust, and only one ragged little man was holding it up. It was Francis. Our Lord said to the pope, “This is the man through whom the church shall be rebuilt.””
I thought, what could be better than someone who can rebuild our church! We are in such difficult times. Catholics are so confused and need direction. Could this new pope be the man who can bring the Church back to her former glory? Oh, I hope so! Pope Francis has a hard job ahead of him, and he is in need of many prayers. We all need to pray for him!
