    All i can is thank ALMIGHTY GOD for POPE FRANCIS 1 and pray that the GOD who has chosen him from the end of the earth will guide him through all the fires, valleys and hills ahead of him. That Almighty God will release favour, honour, mercy and showers of blessings upon him for the total conversion of the entire pilgrim church on earth.
