Today, we will go to Mass at St Peter’s Basilica and stay to pray the Angelus with Pope Francis at noon! We are also planning on attending the Papal Audience on Wednesday (the Feast of St Therese!). One way or another…I will have our own Equipping Catholic Families Pope Francis Prayer Cards with me, to receive a general blessing from Pope Francis!
The front of the card has Kelly’s new Pope Francis drawing with an awesome quote about the Church where we receive MERCY, HOPE, LOVE and FORGIVENESS!
The other side of the prayer card has our own Five Finger Prayer, originally published in A Treasure Chest of Traditions for Catholic Families. I know that there are prayer posters inspired by Pope Francis and the concept of this handy prayer (sorry, couldn’t help it. =)
When I wrote our book over 13 years ago, it would seem that I was inspired by the same article or idea that Pope Francis was!
Yes, our Five Finger Prayer rhymes >ahem< and it follows the same intentions as Pope Francis’ prayer…for each of the five fingers.
Super easy for kids to learn and remember, just saying. =)
Would YOU like one of our very own Equipping Catholic Families Pope Francis Prayer Cards?
As mentioned on Rome Day One…I’m hoping that I will indeed be able to bring these Pope Francis Prayer Cards home blessed…and we hope to send one out to everyone who requests one by commenting on our Rome blogposts (Sept 22-October 3)… and filling out this form.
