"Pray for me!", asked our new Pope, His Holiness Francis. For us, faithful of Buenos-Aires, these words had become "his words." Each sermon, each one-on-one encounter, each letter, each conversation, he would conclude with those same words: "Pray for me." And you could tell from his gaze that it was a request to be taken seriously, a request not to forget!
