"Help them with your prayers"

"May the daily consideration of the heavy burden which weighs upon the Pope and the bishops move you to venerate and love them with real affection, and to help them with your prayers." (The Forge, 136)

Thank you, my God, for that love for the Pope you have placed in my heart. (The Way, 573)

Every day you must grow in loyalty towards the Church, the Pope and the Holy See ... with a love that should be always more theological. (Furrow, 353)

Welcome the Pope's words with a religious, humble, internal and effective acceptance. And pass them on. (The Forge, 133)

Your deepest love, your greatest esteem, your most heartfelt veneration, your most complete obedience and your warmest affection have also to be shown towards the Vicar of Christ on earth, towards the Pope.

We Catholics should consider that after God and the most Holy Virgin, our Mother, the Holy Father comes next in the hierarchy of love and authority. (The Forge, 135)

It is difficult to have devotion to our Lady and not feel closer to the other members of the mystical body and more united to its visible head, the pope. That’s why I like to repeat: All with Peter to Jesus through Mary! By seeing ourselves as part of the Church and united to our brothers in the faith, we understand more deeply that we are brothers of all mankind, for the Church has been sent to all the peoples of the earth. (Christ is Passing By, 139, 4)
