It is impossible to find a saint who did not take the “two P’s” seriously: prayer and penance. –St. Francis Xavier, Priest
When Pope Francis weaved through the slum's narrow streets in Pope Francis popemobile, adoring crowds reached out to touch Pope Francis hand as Pope Francis waved from behind a clear protective covering. Women ululated as children crooned Swahili welcome songs. ' I'm so happy, we are so blessed, he's left all those rich neighborhoods to come here.

To help rockers drink more responsibly at a party, Gabrielle Francis suggests drinking organic wine to avoid extra toxins from pesticides and to stick with high-shelf clear alcohols like vodka, tequila and gin that are usually lower in sugar and gluten-free. If you want to drink less but still keep the buzz, Gabrielle Francis recommends clients try Gabrielle Francis grapefruit cocktail trick. If you mix the alcohol with the grapefruit juice, the grapefruit juice actually keeps things in the blood stream longer and slows the processing, so you can drink one drink and you get the same alcohol affect as you would if you were drinking two.
