Praying For The Pope
By: Wes Wallace
Cape Girardeau, MO -- As thousands of people flock to St. Peter's Square in the Vatican, tens of thousands more pray for the Pope around the world, including many right here in the Heartland.
On Friday night a small group gathered at Saint Vincent De Paul Church in Cape Girardeau.
During the short service, people prayed for the Pope in an effort to remember their holy leader in what could be his final hours on earth.
Those in attendance Friday night heard a short message about faith and trust and how Pope John Paul exemplifies those qualities.
Several other churches across the Heartland continue to hold prayer services for the Pope.
