poor and for the poor

16 Mar

How I would like a church that is poor and for the poor.

Francis of Assisi is the man of poverty, the man of peace, the man who loves and guards creation.

    What a fantastic man of God for all of us to rally around and make our Lord’s words become action!!!

    What a beautiful blend of Ignatian and Franciscan spirituality the Lord has given us!

    I don’t mean to brag….but, Cardinal Caludio Hummes was the cardinal that I adopted from “Adopt a Cardinal” I prayed for him a lot, that he would be open to the Holy Spirit. So….maybe my prayers helped lead the pope into choosing the name of Francis???? I’m going with it!

      That will be my story about you and the conclave – that’s your story and I’m sticking to it.
