Pope to packed stadium: Families are under attack

ROME (AP) – Pope Francis has led a pep rally to boost faith at Rome’s soccer stadium, packed with more than 50,000 Catholics who follow charismatic movements, which he jokingly likened to samba dancing.

Hands raised in unison, the faithful prayed in Olympic Stadium Sunday for Francis, who repeatedly has asked his church for prayers.

Francis told the faithful that the devil wants to destroy the family, which he described as the “domestic church.” Bishops from worldwide will meet in Rome in October to discuss problems afflicting families.


Couldn’t agree more with the Pope, its unfortunate we live in a secular world, were we always get bombarded with abortion, gay rights, divorces as being ok.

Im glad there was a pack house

Under attack…by certain liberals and certain excuse-making conservatives
