I Just Got This Note from Pope Francis

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 05/08/16

Actually, he sent it to all of us: 

Pope Francis marked World Communications Day with a Message and with words of encouragement to Catholic communicators during his Regina coeli remarks. He also used his Twitter and Instagram accounts to spread the word, which he composed by hand and photographed digitally for worldwide sharing. The text of the Holy Father’s handwritten note says, “To you, who from the great digital community, ask for my prayers and blessing, I wish to say that you will be the precious gift in my prayer to the Father. And you, don’t forget to pray for me so that I may be a servant of the Gospel of Mercy.”
