Roman Catholic Women Priests Congratulate Pope Francis 
March 13, 2013
Worldwide members of the international movement of Roman Catholic Women Priests send our heartfelt congratulations to Pope Francis.

We sincerely welcome him with our prayers and hopes for the future of the Roman Catholic Church. We look forward to the birth of a new era that promotes the inclusion of the voices of women, the poor and all others marginalized by society.

We bless our new pope and pray with him. May God be with you, Pope Francis.
