From Rome with Love
The Pope visits America

by Greg Asimakoupoulos
September 25, 2015


From Rome (with love) a Father comes 
to cheer his family
and wrap his arms around them with his words.
Pope Francis speaks the truth of Christ
with gentleness and grace.
He humbly feeds his flock most self-assured.
Amazingly, this man of God 
is followed by the press.
Both chambers of the Congress welcomed him.
The lines of Church-and-State have blurred.
He gets a pass it seems.
The rules have been rewritten once again.
And though the man's a Catholic
and I'm a Protestant,
I'm grateful for the message he conveys:
to understand the overlooked,
to overcome the past,
to offer friendship to both straight and gays.
