Pope’s tweet on seeking Virgin’s help to keep focussed on Jesus



August 31, 2013 - In his latest social microblog, Pope Francis is inviting all to ask Mary to help them keep their eyes fixed on Her Son, especially in difficult times. “Let us ask Mary to help us fix our eyes intently on Jesus, to follow him always, even when this is demanding,” is the latest tweet that the Pope posted on Saturday on his Twitter account @ Pontifex. Pope Francis has a special devotion to the Virgin Mary, as he has shown on several occasions. The evening he was elected Pope, he told thousands of people in St. Pater’s Square in Rome that the following day he would pay a visit to the Madonna, which he duly did visiting Rome’s Mary Major Basilica. And again before and after his trip to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, July 22-29, he visited the same basilica.
