We have all witnessed the warm reception of the Filipino people (Catholics or otherwise) to the apostolic visit of Pope Francis to the Philippines. It’s impressive how good we behaved while he was here. It was such a lovely sight to behold, really.
Pope Francis is such an inspiration. He’s so warm and genuine. The kind and comforting words he left us have definitely touched our lives in more ways than one. I had the chance to see him face to face and eye to eye at our workplace when he visited there last Friday. (He even blessed us as he was walking past us!) I couldn’t describe the mixed emotions I felt. Napatulala na lang talaga ako. Paano pa kaya pag si Jesus na ang makita ko?! Waaaaah!
When he left for Rome yesterday morning, things have never been the same. I just wish all the teachings of the Lord that Pope Francis have shared with us live in our hearts and reflect in our actions. Indeed, this world needs all the mercy and compassion it can get to be a better place for all of us.
Thank you, Pope Francis, for gracing us with your presence in this time of trials and tribulations in our country! 🙂
May you choose happiness always (or you can shop for some nice apothecary products from this site),
