Include more inspiration from the pope

I was so disappointed to see only two small references to our Pope Francis in Catholic San Francisco issue of June 22. I have really appreciated the summaries of his sermons from the daily Mass in the chapel of the Domus Sanctae Marthae that you have sometimes printed in the paper. They inspire and teach us to be like Jesus.

The love and admiration for Pope Francis, among people of all faiths and even with no faith, is enormous. We lament the falling attendance at Mass, but we do not speak about or celebrate our most popular pope.

Please do include more of the pope’s inspiring messages. And tell us of his deeds. Did you know the pope, who had already provided showers and barbers for the homeless in the Vatican, has recently installed washers and dryers for them also?

This is good news. They will know we are Christians by our love.
