We join the World today as we pray in thanksgiving for the gift of Pope Francis.
Here in Ireland we rememory with great his visit to us last summer and of course his visit to meet the poor at the Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless People in Dublin.
Pope Francis is a man of prayer and and man of deep compassion. He pray that his example will lead many to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ.
May the Lord bless him and keep him.
