New app asks users to pray for Pope Francis...using his voice

2014-06-21

Since his election, Pope Francis makes the same request to every person he meets no matter where he goes: 'Pray for me.'

POPE FRANCIS
"Now I ask you a favor. Before the bishop blesses his people, I ask that all of you pray to the Lord so that He blesses me.” 

A new app for smartphones wants to honor Pope Francis' petition, and get as many people as possible to pray for him.

Everyday it shows users a different photo of the Pope, and they can then press the 'Pray' button. The goal of the app is getting more than a million prayers for the Pope.

And if users forget to pray, a message from the app reminds them to do it...with the voice of Pope Francis himself.

"And don't forget to pray for me.”

Pope Francis is very clear when it comes to asking for prayers: on the flight back from WYD in Rio 2013, he explained that he can't carry on with his mission without them.

The creators of the app also invented the social platoform and video 'May Feelings'. They say they want to help Pope Francis through technology.
