Today, we give thanks to God for the fifth anniversary of the pontificate of Pope Francis. Our Holy Father has shown us a new way to lead the world, to build bridges and not walls, to show love and not hatred, to welcome and not cast away.
In giving thanks to God, let us consider how we can do more to build bridges, show love, and offer welcome.
Lord Jesus, bless and strengthen Pope Francis in his ministry to the Church and the world. Keep him free from all harm and enfold him in your love, Amen
