Defend Pope Francis

In recent days, there have been multiple attempts by American leaders to discredit Pope Francis's global leadership of the Catholic Church.

Mostly recently, news broke that the former chairman for the American bishop's doctrine committee wrote a scathing letter to Pope Francis, saying that he ways he runs his ministry risks "sinning against the Holy Spirit."

We wholeheartedly reject this.

Please add your name below to this note that we will deliver to Pope Francis in Rome:

Dear Francis,

We have faith in your leadership of the global Catholic Church. We will continually defend you and your integrity against those who would try to undermine your ministry as the Successor of St. Peter. We are thankful for your continued compassion for God's people—particularly those who are marginalized and excluded. We thank God for the gift of your papacy and will continue to hold you in our prayers.

  • At long last, the Catholic Church has a pope whose focus is the essential message of Jesus: compassion for all Creation. I have a sticker on my car that reminds anyone who reads it that, “Compassion is invincible.”
  • Pope Francis is one of the best shining lights for our faith that has appeared over at least the past century!
