Song: Little Poverello, May You Bless the New Pope Francis I! Poem by Dr John Celes


Little Poverello, may you show the new Pope Francis,
How to live as you did, and to love and serve God too,
You gave up your riches and wore only rags as dresses,
Help humble Pope Francis, help him serve the Lord like you.

'Midst scorching sun or pouring rain, you lived for just God's sake,
You begged for alms to build the Church and kept for Christ, awake! .

Tell him how to be poor and to help the poorer brethren;
Through poverty alone, one can go near God and heav'n;
World lies in much chaos, people want true joy in great sins;
If men follow Jesus, with no cross, it makes no sense!

'Midst scorching sun or pouring rain, you lived for just God's sake,
You begged for alms to build the Church and kept for Christ, awake!

Bless the new Pope Francis, may the Church progress under him;
Give him much more wisdom, lead the flock to rock like you;
May he solve all problems, which the Church is facing today;
May the blood of Jesus, wash away all sins of men!

'Midst scorching sun or pouring rain, you lived for just God's sake,
You begged for alms to build the Church and kept for Christ, awake!
