You tube May 15, 2013. (Romereports.com) The Pope usually asks people to pray for him. During Wednesday’s Mass, he asked others to pray for bishops and priests, so that they can be good  shepherds. The Pope also warned them about the harm that comes when one gets attached to riches or fame.

POPE FRANCIS

“Read this beautiful text and as you read it, pray for us, for bishops and priests. We need prayers to stay loyal to our calling. To be men who can watch over their flock and ourselves. To truly to do this…so that their hearts will always run towards their flock. Also pray that the Lord can keep us from temptations, because if we follow a path of wealth, if we follow a path of vanity, we become wolves and not shepherds.”

The Pope then made a reference to a reading from St. Paul, where he calls Christians to be vigilant and instruments of the Holy Spirit.
