Pope Francis Philippine Itinerary

I have visited the birthplace of Buddha in Nepal, I have visited different Mosques when I travel to Muslim countries, it seems fitting that I join the millions of people to welcome Pope Francis in the Philippines because I’m Roman Catholic.

The travel to Europe will follow.. as soon as I got travel funds to go to that part of the world.. not sure when.. Hopefully this year dear Universe/Angels/Saints/God? ^_^

Anyway, here goes the Pope’s itinerary:

  1. When Pope John Paul visited Philippines way back 1981 .. my parents named me after him … when he went back to PH i was second year student it was 1995 i remember singing Heal our land..

    Pope Francis is a smiling Pope but he said Catholics dont have to breed like rabbits… well im the 10th child of our family and i do agree with him… Pope for the poor he is and im glad he visited Leyte and care for the victims of Yolanda … we are blessed he visited us.. i believe many child born this month will be named Francis..
