Whether or not you agree with Pope Francis’s views on faith, at the very least, pray for him.
This is what Bishop T.D. Jakes told his Instagram followers after attending the Catholic leader’s welcoming ceremony at the White House.
“As the world watches this international figure move through our country, let’s pray that the Pope’s journey is safe!” wrote the charismatic leader in the photo caption of him and his wife Serita at the event.
The Dallas-based pastor of The Potter’s House began his online message with a shout-out to President Barack Obama “for his VIP invitation to attend such a historical event.”
Francis, the leader of 1.2 billion Catholics is on a three-city tour of America that began in Washington with a speech tackling climate change, immigration and poverty.
Wearing his white cassock and skullcap, the 78-year-old spoke to the crowd of 15,000.
Both Catholics and non-Catholics alike captured photos and videos on their cellphones, fascinated by the 266th pope — only the fourth to visit the United States and third to visit Washington.
