“How shall freedom be defended? By arms when it is attacked by arms, by truth when it is attacked by lies, by faith when it is attacked by authoritarian dogma. Always, in the final act, by determination and faith.”

― Archibald MacLeish

Bienvenido a Filipinas: Papa Francisco, Apostol de los Pobres

“In these moments of great suffering, don’t tire of saying, 'Why?' (Be) like children...and so attract the eyes of our Father for your people; draw the tenderness of the 'dad of heaven’ upon yourselves.  Be like the child when asking, ‘Why? Why?’” 
Pope Francis
2 Crónicas 7:14 Spanish
y se humilla mi pueblo sobre el cual es invocado mi nombre, y oran, buscan mi rostro y se vuelven de sus malos caminos, entonces yo oiré desde los cielos, perdonaré su pecado y sanaré su tierra.
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
A trusted shepherd living the smell of sheep. 
Dear Jesus, please protect Pope Francis during his visit .
May your Angels and our people shield him from the evil ones.
Please make our beloved Pope, your repair man of The Church.
May the Pope be the moral exemplar to our  bishops and priests.
37 Entonces los justos le responderán diciendo: Señor, ¿cuándo te vimos hambriento, y te sustentamos, o sediento, y te dimos de beber?
38 ¿Y cuándo te vimos forastero, y te recogimos, o desnudo, y te cubrimos?
39 ¿O cuándo te vimos enfermo, o en la cárcel, y vinimos a ti?
40 Y respondiendo el Rey, les dirá: De cierto os digo que en cuanto lo hicisteis a uno de estos mis hermanos más pequeños, a mí lo hicisteis.
41 Entonces dirá también a los de la izquierda: Apartaos de mí, malditos, al fuego eterno preparado para el diablo y sus ángeles.
42 Porque tuve hambre, y no me disteis de comer; tuve sed, y no me disteis de beber;
43 fui forastero, y no me recogisteis; estuve desnudo, y no me cubristeis; enfermo, y en la cárcel, y no me visitasteis.
44 Entonces también ellos le responderán diciendo: Señor, ¿cuándo te vimos hambriento, sediento, forastero, desnudo, enfermo, o en la cárcel, y no te servimos?
45 Entonces les responderá diciendo: De cierto os digo que en cuanto no lo hicisteis a uno de estos más pequeños, tampoco a mí lo hicisteis.
46 E irán éstos al castigo eterno, y los justos a la vida eterna.
"44 Then they themselves also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?' 45"Then He will answer them, 'Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.' 46"These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."
Matthew 25:45
Pope Francis Message During The Yolanda Disaster
"I wish to express my closeness to the people of the Philippines and of that region. Unfortunately there are many victims and the damage is enormous. We pray now in silence ... for our brothers and sisters, and we will seek to also send concrete help." 
"Deseo asegurar mi cercanía a las poblaciones de Filipinas y de esa región, que fueron alcanzadas por el tremendo tifón. Lamentablemente, las víctimas son muchas y los daños enormes. Recemos en silencio a la Virgen por estos hermanos y hermanas nuestras, y tratemos de hacer llegar a ellos también nuestra ayuda concreta". Papa Francisco.
Papa Francisco, muchas, muchas gracias por los rezos y ayuda para los víctimas del tifon Yolanda!
Jesus tells his followers that whenever they help a person in need — “the least of my brothers and sisters” — they do it to him.
Love For The Poor
Many of the stories introducing Francis from his time as bishop focus on his love for Christ poor, for the simplicity of evangelical poverty, and for the poor themselves. They tell of his frequent visits to the slums of the city (by bus, of course) to be with his people there. In describing his choice of the name Francis he concluded: “How I would like a Church which is poor and for the poor!” He marries this love of poverty with a clear-sighted understanding of its birth from structures of injustice, pointing out that human rights are violated not only by physical and political violence, but “also by unfair economic structures that create huge inequalities.” From The Jesuit Post
Mateo 25:35-46
35 Porque tuve hambre, y me disteis de comer; tuve sed, y me disteis de beber; fui forastero, y me recogisteis;
36 estuve desnudo, y me cubristeis; enfermo, y me visitasteis; en la cárcel, y vinisteis a mí.
“There are many things that we cannot understand. When children begin to grow, they don't understand things and begin to ask questions of their father or mother.” Pope Francis
