Pope Francis co-wrote it with Argentinian-Italian musician Odino Facci. The pope is Argentinean (of Italian descent).

It is titled  “Para que todos sean uno” (“So We Can All Be One”).

Pope Francis performed it during the Palm Sunday public Mass, on March 29, 2015, in St. Peter’s Square, Vatican.

Odino Facci had previously composed a song based on a poem written by Pope John Paul II (#265).

Yes, it is another Anura Guruge Papal Excel spreadsheet.

Yes, it is for another Anura Guruge Pope book. But, that is not the next book. It will be the one after the next. Started working on the data while the next book is being proofed (painfully slowly).

I have another spreadsheet, related to this trip, i.e., Pope Francis’ September 2015 visit to Philadelphia, U.S. Congress, White House, New York, United Nations etc., that I will publish tomorrow.

I just have a feeling that THIS could be THE year!

Yes, the Sinhalese in Sri Lanka have been hoping for the last few years.
Last year looked promising, but in the end there was no cigar.

But, I know that Sri Lankans have been diligently
plugging away at Google.
That is good.

They got the 2nd Sri Lanka Independence Day Google Doodle
this year — though Google got the name wrong!
That was a big deal and I am pleased
for the Sri Lankans.

Nope, I have NOT done anything.
Yes, I could have contacted Google.
They know me.
I did in 2013 to get the famous,
FIRST Google Doodle
for Sri Lanka.

So, I have done MY part.
I am giving others a chance.
They have to learn.

But, I feel fairly confident.

Happy New Year.

Sri Lanka, EVER, has only had two (2) Google Doodles,
