    Welcome to the PHilippines Pope Francis!

    Seeing him even just on tv makes my heart at peace and happy. Knowing he's here in Philippines makes me feel blessed and I'm sure other filipinos feels the same.. Thank God for this Papal visit. Amen <3

    I'm not involved in the Church at all.

    I couldn't tell you the last time I set foot in a church. I try to pray regularly in private though. Hopefully I can reignite my faith and get back to church every week like I used to.

    If anyone comes to a point

    where they refuse to listen, and believe indeed that they are the seed of Abraham they place themselves in the same position as the Pharisee in the time of Jesus, arrogant and high minded, particularly Roman Catholics.

    This is an interesting read with bible

    references for praying with the saints. I wouldn't really expect it to overcome the objections raised by our non Catholic Christian brothers and sisters though. http://www.catholic365.com/article/2721/where-does-the-bible-say-we-are-allowed-to-pray-to-dead-saints.html

    I once left the Catholic Church behind,

    We could choose what to
