A Pope for Every Day People

What can I say about a man who touches my heart every time he speaks?
Before Pope Francis, I very rarely read what 'the pope' was saying because I found it too 'theological and complicated,' not something I could relate to very well.
But then along came Pope Francis and suddenly I found myself completely intrigued every time he speaks.
His message is always simple, yet he touches me very deeply. He urges me to look at what needs to be changed in my life in a very gentle manner...just like Jesus did when he reached out to sinners.
Pope Francis has renewed my faith in Catholicism and I pray that he will continue to lead us for many years to come.
Happy 4th Anniversary Pope Francis!
