My Pope Philippines
Unlimited access to My Pope Philippines Magazine along with 5,000+ other titles and premium articles
My Pope Philippines is an adapted English version of Italian magazine, Il Mio Papa, dedicated entirely to Pope Francis. Every month, My Pope describes the life of the Holy Father, an emotional ride of meetings, words, and simple gestures of his daily life that highlight the important message of change that permeates his pontificate. At least 65% of the content is international and 35% is created by the local editorial team in the Philippines to feature stories highlighting the encouraging developments in the lives of Filipinos, whose values and actions reflect those that the Pope stands for, with sections on good news, inspiring stories, traditions, arts and crafts and everyday heroes.
Perhaps it’s no coincidence that we celebrate My Pope’s first- year anniversary as our dear Pope Francis finds himself in the spotlight under the most trying circumstances. But just as our Pope has always inspired us in good times, he has proven to be even more admirable when faced with challenges. Instead of acting defensively, he has shown his character, reminding us all to live with truth, integrity, and love as our guiding lights. Indeed, the world can be a very dark place, but we must always remember that—like Pope Francis—we do not need to succumb to negativity. Instead, we can choose to focus on what brings happiness and inspiration to our lives.
