Pope Francis Of Rome: Figure of Peace, Love, And Humility
Heavenly Father, thank you for calling Pope Francis to feed your sheep and to lead your Church in these troubled times. Give him your Holy Spirit to speak truth to the world, the faithful and the faithless alike, with courage, wisdom, and love. May he always walk close to your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, abiding in him and bearing much fruit to the glory of God. May he be a channel of your mercy and turn many hearts to you. Let your peace and protection remain upon him in all his travels. We ask these things in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on December 17, 1936. He became Pope Francis on March 13, 2013, when he was named the 266th pope of the Roman Catholic Church. Bergoglio, the first pope from the Americas, took his papal title after St. Francis of Assisi of Italy. Before his election as pope, he served as archbishop of Buenos Aires from 1998 to 2013, as cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church of Argentina from 2001 to 2013, and as president of the Bishops' Conference of Argentina from 2005 to 2011. Pope Francis made his first international visit in July 2013, traveling to Brazil. In December 2013, Pope Francis was also named Person of the Year by Time magazine. To date, his tenure has been characterized by his outspoken support of the world's poor and marginalized people, and he has been involved actively in areas of political diplomacy and environmental advocacy. He is considered 'The People's Pope' and represents Peace, Love, and Humility.
