In a memorable encounter in the nation’s Pontifical University, Pope Francis had a heart-felt dialogue with the Filipino youth, a demographic that makes up more than 40% of the country’s population. With the many problems facing the youth in this region – homelessness, school dropouts, sex trafficking and prostitution – this was a critical engagement for Pope Francis, recognizing these young people as the future of the Catholic Church in the Philippines and the entire world. He said, “what is the most important lesson to learn in university and in life? To learn how to love.”

‘He is the Vicar of Christ on earth. If we get close to him (Pope Francis), we get close to Christ. Jesus has something to tell us through Pope Francis.’ We must go out to the peripheries to encounter those that need Christ’s love. There are ‘one billion Catholics’ on earth. But what if there were seven billion Catholics on earth! Let us unite our prayers with Pope Francis and the Priests and Religious of the Philippines for the inspiration and fortitude to go forth and proclaim the good news to the world.

What a moment that would be, if you could spend five minutes with the Holy Father! Perhaps we sometimes forget in the 21st century, that the Pope, now Pope Francis, is a successor to Saint Peter.

And imagine, if you could ask the successor to God’s divine plan for the Catholic Church, one question. What would you ask? Share your questions below.

When Pope Francis visits the Philippines this January 15-19, 2015, it will be a tremendous blessing to a nation whose covenant with God has been tested in recent years due to natural disasters, like Typhoon Haiyan.

The spotlight will not be on Pope Francis, but on the towns and villages devastated by “Haiyan,” the strongest typhoon on record in the Philippines. The typhoon’s destructive path displaced four million people and destroyed over one million homes. Videos of loved ones who lost family members, sharing their stories, and hoping for mercy and compassion from the global community will be featured here on this website, leading up to the Papal visit in the Philippines, this January 2015.
