On your fifth anniversary, thank you Pope Francis

Today is the fifth anniversary of Pope Francis's election as the universal leader of the Catholic Church. Through the joys and the hopes and the sufferings and the anxieties of the people of God, Pope Francis has walked with the Church the entire way.

On this anniversary, we simply say "thank you, Holy Father!" Ad multos annos! We wish you many great years ahead, and—as you've asked—we'll continue to pray for you and your ministry.

  • Dear Pope Francis, My mother, a faithful Christian was raised in the Catholic Church in NYC and left to marry my father. But when Pope John the 23rd was pope she prayed for the goodness and power of the papacy for love in the world. I have followed your wonderful work of hope and energizing the love and faith of ordinary people. Keep up God’s work of standing in the Holy Spirit and speaking out for God’s values!
