Pope Francis’ First Acts…

The Holy Father today, in one of his first official acts, visited the Patriarchal Basilica of St. Mary Major.  He prayed, as promised yesterday, to Our Lady, under the title of the Salvation of the People of Rome.  He also stopped to pray at the tomb of the Dominican St. Pius V, the Pope who codified the already centuries old Tridentine Missal.  Let us continue to pray for the Holy Father, as he prepares to do the task that God is asking of him.
