Why angry Catholics should pray and fast for Pope Francis:

Suppose you hope he resigns. (I don't, but I know people who do.) So, when he comes to reflect on whether or not to resign, how is the Holy Father supposed to make the right decision when he is not supported by the graces that (should have been) caused from your prayer and penance for him?! We all need to love and pray and do penance for the pope, and more now than usual--regardless of how we hope this all turns out.
