Saints are most worthy examples for us to imitate. They experienced the same problems that we do; they know the same hopes, fears sufferings and joys -- many times to a much greater extent. They pray for us as they behold almighty God face to face. Let us pray to St. Patrick that more and more we may know the truths of our holy Faith. May we always ask St. Joseph to pray for all fathers and for all of us to have happy deaths, that is, in the grace of God.
We are so fortunate to have a holy Pope elected so quickly. It shows the unity of the Cardinals under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. God is really taking care of us. May eternal praise be given to Him, and may we daily pray for Pope Francis.
