We have Pope Francis

We have Pope Francis to guide us through the 22nd century and I pray that God's Will takes over in everything the Catholic Church does. Prayers, prayers and more prayers.

Here is Philippine Daily Inquirer's summary of Pope Francis first homily. The Catholic Church as an important institution of the society is real and I myself never thought of it but it is a possibility, the Church becoming an NGO:

VATICAN CITY—Pope Francis on Thursday warned cardinals at his first Mass since being elected that the Catholic Church risked being reduced to a non-governmental organization unless it undergoes spiritual renewal.
Warning of the dangers of inaction, Francis told the cardinals that the Church could “end up a compassionate NGO,” using a word in Italian that can also mean “pitiful.”
“If we do not confess, if we do not pray to the Lord, we are praying to the Devil. When you do not confess to Jesus Christ, you are confessing to the worldliness of the Devil,” he said. 
“Walking, building and confessing are not so easy. Sometimes there are tremors,” he said.
“I would like all of us after these days of grace to have the courage to walk in the presence of the Lord,” he said.
Oh Lord we pray!
