This inspirational and touching prayer card was created from an image taken by Newscom which went viral on the internet. The image was taken as Pope Francis walked among the crowd and picked up and embraced an 8 year old young child who had cerebral palsy. The prayer on the back of the prayer card is adapted from a homily given by Pope Francis that he delivered on the third Sunday of Easter in 2013. The prayer is called the Prayer of Discipleship and gives thanks to God for choosing the one praying to be God's disciple and includes petitions such as "Help me proclaim and bear witness to the Gospel....Open my heart to the outcast....Grant me the courage to think, to choose and to live as a Christian" etc. The prayer is reflected by the qualities shown in the image of Pope Francis as his actions bear witness to the Gospel teachings and certainly show his caring heart as he enfolds and holds the child. The Pope Francis Prayer for Discipleship prayer card gives people the means to pray each day to live a better life as a Christian in an effort to become closer to God. The prayer card could be given to those making a religious retreat, to religious education classes or even to an entire parish.
