I am not Roman Catholic, but I have to say how much I rate this new pope. I shall continue praying for him and for Justin Welby, leader of the Anglican Union (though I’m not Anglican, either). May we see a wave of change sweeping across the globe, sharing the Gospel of Love in Thought, in Word and in Deed. May we see the unity that Jesus prayed for, on the night He was betrayed, when He prayed for all believers:
“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.”
