Pope Francis: The New World Pontiff


"The Pope has a great responsibility towards his followers and I hope that he will be able to finish what he started until his last breath of his reign. We need a leader who will resolve the issues that created trouble and confusion among his people. May His Holiness remain to be strong in all levels so he will be able to act on duties vested in him."



It was just few days ago when the conclave started to elect new pontiff to lead the Catholic Church. There were 115 Cardinals from around the world gathered in Sistine chapel to vote whom they think is capable of guiding and leading a billion of followers. After several attempts for the voting, finally a new Pope was declared. 

A humble man from Argentina, Jorge Mario Borgoglio was chosen by his fellow Cardinals to be the successor of Pope Benedict XVI who declared his resignation last month. At the age of 76, he will be the guiding light of the faithful towards their spiritual path. 

His Holiness will be officially addressed as Pope Francis after he has chosen the papal name as his title. I must believe he was inspired by St. Francis of Assisi and decided to adopt as his designation. I hope that His Holiness will be able to uphold the reputation of St. Francis as an icon of humility and peace. 

As a Christian, I adore St. Francis for his life stories and holiness and I love to sing the prayer that was made in his name; The Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi. Pope Francis could be like him and start the great transformation in the Catholic church. 

It would take will-power and great love for the Pope to reform the church against controversies that is left unresolved. However, like the late Pope John Paul II; I believe that Pope Francis has the charisma and heart for the reformation of Christian values and will be able to influence people regardless of faith and religious beliefs. 

The Pope has a great responsibility towards his followers and I hope that he will be able to finish what he started until his last breath of his reign. We need a leader who will resolve the issues that created trouble and confusion among his people. May His Holiness remain to be strong in all levels so he will be able to act on duties vested in him. 

'The Pope' not only shows greatness as a title, but it is such a great responsibility and accountability to uphold. I highly admire and respect 'The Pope' as my source of inspiration and religious wisdom and 'The Pope' who believes and teaches people that 'There is A Certain Holiness in You'

The world is becoming more materialistic as we reach the modern age, but we have to strengthen our spirituality and faith to our Divine as the ultimate source of life. We have a lot to improve and there are 'Nature and Sources of Power' in the fulfillment of our Divine self ministry.

I am grateful that now we have a new Pope that will lead us to Christ. He is our spiritual Father living on earth that was chosen by his people. He will guide us and he needs our support and prayers for spiritual devotion and evangelization.
