1The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth.Next Verse 2
We rejoice in the election of our new Holy Father, Pope Francis I. What a wonderful gift you have bestowed upon us in this courageous leader!
We thank you for your continued guidance of our Most Holy Church, and we pray you continue to extend your blessings to our Church Fathers and all your faithful.
We ask that you be with Francis now, as he embarks on a great undertaking, shepherding, stewarding, and renewing the flock.
We pledge to you, our Lord, our most true and humble obedience to your will through our Holy Father who guides and fosters us through these turbulent times.
