Founders of Catholic social network invite Pope Francis to join their 'online' prayers

Mission accomplished: Joaquí­n and Santiago wanted to tell Pope Francis all about the Catholic prayer network they created, and they succeded: this is the moment when the two Spaniards got to meet the Pope.

The social network is called 'May Feelings,' and its goal is to connect those asking for prayers with those willing to pray. Their founders are also regular users; actually, their trip to Rome was the result of a petition. Now they want the Pope to become a user.

JOAQUíN DE LOS RíOS

Co-founder, 'May Feelings'

"'May Feelings is a social network that allows users to publish petitions so that people can pray for it, and so it would be wonderful if Pope Francis also prayed for each petition and you could get and email saying: 'Pope Francis is praying for you'.�

Father Fabian Baez, the Argentinian priest Pope Francis invited to his Popemobile, is key in this whole story

SANTIAGO REQUEJO

Co-founder, 'May Feelings'

'Father Fabian is the ambassador of May Feelings in Argentina. We were watching the news at home and we suddenly saw that the Popemobile stops and then that Father Fabian got in. We immediately got in touch with him and thanks to him we were so fortunate to see Pope Francis in the general audience.�

'May Feelings' was created in 2012, and today helps more than 100,000 users from 112 countries.

Co-founder, 'May Feelings'

"May Feelings wants for everyone in the world to have someone that is praying for him or her. We simply connect the need for prayer with the people that want to pray.�

Every day 'May Feelings' registers 2,000 new petitions. More than a social network, it could be called a 'spiritual network' that connects Catholics from all over the world.
