Pope Francis Superstar

Who would have guessed?  Crowds packed the churches and lined the streets for an Argentinian of Italian descent.  We were all taken by his attitude but his humility was what shown through as he smiled and asked us to pray for him.  I thought pray for him, he doesn’t need my prayers, I need him to pray for me and for us.

Now he is back in Rome. A couple of controversies have popped up. This happens to all superstars, consider the Beatles after their first US tour. We continued to listen to their music long after their departure. Will we continue to listen to his message after his departure? I tend to think not but then some of us are listening to Bernie Sanders. Wait a second not so quick, some of us are listening to Donald Trump. I hope he visits again soon, very soon.
