Papa Francis The First | His Holiness Papa Francisco

Happy Fourth!...

On this day, I always reflect on the freedoms that we have living in the United States of America. Working at Franciscan Media, one I think about especially often is freedom of religion.

Today, I pray in thanksgiving for my freedom of religion, and I pray that others who are persecuted for their beliefs may have the strength to hold tight to them.

As we celebrate with family and friends today, may we remember how blessed we are to live here. God bless the USA.

"And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and people, this journey of the Church of Rome, which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood.

I will now give my blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will."

-Papa Francis quote

He does not know you, yet he prays for you.
He will most likely never meet you, yet he loves you.

This is your chance to show your love, for as the Bible teaches, "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."
