This Holy Father means so much to me for reasons that are deeply sacred and special. There’s not enough space here to share my wonderful feeling about this great man of God who is deep in my heart. I pray that the beautiful man of Christ who I will always look up to, and the great holy love I have for Him is felt by all who view this portrait.
