Do we pray "to" the Pope?

What's wrong with this picture?

As of this date (11/2/13) Pope Francis is still alive on earth, and we don't pray TO him, do we? We pray to God and to the saints. This prayer card is from the Companions of St. Anthony, Ellicott City, MD.  The little medal at the top right says "Pope Francis Pray for Us."

View all of my books.

  1. It seems more of a request for prayers...just as we would ask each other to pray for us or our intentions. Not sure, but can we not ask the living Pope--as well as St. Anthony--to pray for us, even on a medal or prayer card? Interesting...
