By Alon Calinao Dy: Pope Francis, a leader of the Catholic Church, has emerged to be a more influential figure for creating a connection to other religions because of his compassionate nature.
The Holy Father wanted to restore the unity among all Christians and non Christians because the true peace lies if all people are united as one whatever their faith in life.
I have three messages for our beloved Pope Francis on his birthday:
I want to thank his Holiness Pope Francis for being an excellent leader of the Catholic Church and for uniting all religious leaders in the world.
I want to thank Pope Francis in helping bring back world peace.
I want to thank Pope Francis for planning to visit the Philippines on January 2015 particularly the Yolanda survivors in Tacloban City and other affected areas when super typhoon Haiyan devastated many places that caused several mass graves last November 2013.
The Holy Pope now celebrates his 78th birthday. If you are given a chance to talk to Pope Francis, what do you desire to tell him? What are your wishes in life that our Holy Father can pray over you? I believe his affection is for everyone, especially for the poor. He is absolutely a great Pope.
Happy Birthday, Pope Francis!
