We have our first Pope named FRANCIS,

After St. FRANCIS of Assisi came his name,

They both were HUMBLE and SERVING men,

And neither aspired to fame,

They reached out to the poor and the elderly,

Visited the infirmed, down trodden, the needy,

Forsaking the riches of this world,

Poverty they proclaim….opposing the greedy.

They preached “love one another, as I have loved you…

And your neighbor as yourself”

Love and respect all of nature…and..

Saving our soul is the goal…not wealth.

Congratulations to BOTH as the Bishop of Rome,

A tribute to them…..for they followed Christ’s way,

The first time a Pope was ever named FRANCIS,

BOTH….examples of how to LIVE and to PRAY.
