Habemus Papam

With grateful and joyful hearts we thank our heavenly Father, for giving us a vicar of your Son in the person of Francis I. His first appearance and attitude has spoken volumes, touched the hearts of people all over. True to St. Francis, he has preached by example more than by words.

Lord,Your ways are so marvelous! Being installed as the pope on the feast of St. Joseph, patron of the Universal Church, let the humble servant be always pleasing to you; seeking blessing of the fold and then blessing in turn, his invitation to pray for one another in charity “ for the journey of fraternity of love and trust between us and for brotherhood to be created” is most revealing.

May good will among peoples ever abound. St Joseph, continue to bless, guard and protect our Pope Francis I.
