Pope Francis at St Peter's
What was amazing about Pope Francis during his first trip to the United States as pope was how he transcend political and religious bi-partisanship. It is part of his charisma and charm. In these days when there is so much noise about everything and anything, it is refreshing to have a voice reminding us of the simplicity and sanctity of life.
On the ground, Pope Francis struck a cord in a lot of hearts as you can see people crying openly during mass as captured by television cameras. His messages centered around,
- Family values
- The Power of Love, Truth, and Beauty,
- Triumph of Good and Evil
- Climate change
