News: Pope Francis took to Twitter on March 13, acknowledging the one-year anniversary of his papal inauguration by asking his followers to “Please pray for me.” A year earlier, the new pope approached his crowd of believers in front of the Vatican in March 2013 with a similar request of prayer. Read about how the campus has reacted to Pope Francis in this week’s News Section.
