This message will be sent to Pope Francis In English, Spanish, and Italian continually, until his 78th birthday celebration on December 17th. Hopefully a large number of vegans will share this message with their vegan friends and other religious leaders they may know.

Vegans, please send your own messages to The Pope at the e-mail addresses and or the postal address below requesting that His Holiness, go against the status quo, and tell the World on his birthday that he recently decided to become a vegan.



2,781,000,000,VEGANS IN THE WORLD BY THE END OF 2019


“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” Albert Einstein


On Sunday, October 19th, Pope Francis said he wanted a more merciful and less rigid Church, and also said the Church should not be afraid of change and new challenges. The Pope made his comments in a sermon to some 70,000 people in St. Peter’s Square for the ceremonial closing of a two-week assembly, known as a synod. “God is not afraid of new things. That is why he is continuously surprising us, opening our hearts and guiding us in unexpected ways,” the pope said.


On December 17th His Holiness Pope Francis will celebrate his birthday. The following message to Pope Francis includes a very conservative and realistic prediction of what will happen If Pope Francis announces to the World in St. Peter’s Square, on His Birthday, that he recently decided to become a vegan, for his personal health and welfare. Hoping that the precedent that he sets will also help to improve and protect the health and welfare of billions of people, and billions of animals throughout the World, as well as to help improve and maintain the health and welfare of the Earth. The only home that all humans and animals have to live on.

Hopefully, after reading the following message, and messages from vegans throughout the World, His Holiness Pope Francis will decide that he is also not afraid of new things, and announces to the World on his birthday that he is a vegan.

His Holiness, Pope Francis PP

Dear Most Holy Father,

Your amazing life changing birthday message on December 17th, announcing to the world that you are a vegan will be remembered, and will forever be celebrated every December 17th. Designated as CELEBRATION OF LIFE DAY promoting the health and welfare of every person and animal in the World so they may all live full and safe lives in peace and harmony with the Earth. Holy Father, as the leader of an estimated 1.2 to 1.3 billion Catholics, and one of the most respected and influential religious leaders in the world, you now have the power to dramatically improve the world like no one has ever done before. For the urgently needed benefits of billions of humans, and billions of animals. Which would also contribute substantially to the improved health and welfare of the Earth. The only home all humans and animals have to live on.

Your Holiness, following is a conservative prediction of how one of the most important announcements ever made in history by a religious leader could easily result in the creation of a minimum of at least 2,781,000,000,VEGANS IN THE WORLD BY THE END OF 2019 reported early in 2020 FOR SURE!!

The following publication reveals that currently about 2% to 3% of the population in the world is vegan:

The next publication reveals there are actually an estimated 7.3 billion people in the world:

2% to 3% of 7.3 billion people means there are an estimated 146 to 219 million vegans.

There are a number of publications that estimate that there are between 1.2 and 1.3 billion Catholics in the World.

Holy Father, imagine how many Catholics in the World could and would become vegans in the next five years?

The predictions below will begin with using the lower estimate of current vegans in the world which equals 146 million. Beginning on December 17th, continuous worldwide news flashes lasting many weeks

broadcasting the incredible announcement and power of suggestion by The First Vegan Pope will definitely persuade millions of Catholics and millions of people of many religious faiths to become vegans within a relatively short period of time.

The world population clock below reveals that now there are about 7.3 billion people in the world and in 2020 there will be an estimated 7.7 billion people in the world. The predictions below about how many vegans there will be in the world include the estimated addition of 1 million people in the world population each year from 2015 ending in 2019.

The projections also include a 1% increase each year in the number of new vegans. From (5%) of (7,300,000,000 people in 2015) to (9%) of (7,700,000,000) in 2019.


Your Holiness, hopefully you and your closest advisers will agree that the predictions below of how many vegans there will be are very conservative, and how wonderful it will be, God willing, when the final totals are much higher each year because Your Holiness is a vegan and many other religious leaders become vegans during the next five years.


Current number of Vegans in the world = 146,000,000

5% of 7,300,000,000 people in 2015 = 365,000 000 New Vegans

6% of 7,400,000 000 people in 2016 = 444,000,000 New Vegans

7% of 7,500,000,000 people in 2017 = 525,000,000 New Vegans

8% Of 7,600,000,000 people in 2018 = 608,000,000 New Vegans In 2018

9% Of 7,700,000,000 people in 2019 = 693,000,000 New Vegans in 2019

Total estimated number of Vegans in the world by or in the year 2020 = 2,781,000,000 In World

The largest number of new vegans will probably be in Latin America, India, Europe, Africa, Asia, And North America.

Holy Father, sooner or later someone will be the first vegan Pope! Millions of vegans throughout the world will be hoping and praying that, by the grace of God, that someone is you!!

Your Holiness, please do not be afraid of change and new challenges. Please do not be afraid of being a vegan!!

Be a powerful voice for the voiceless. Choose and promote kindness and life for all of God’s precious animals, and renounce cruelty and death!

In the name of our Lord, Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace for all people and animals.


Yours in Christ

    When I was young I read a book titled “7 billion vegetarians”. At that age it was unlikely to be vegan and it was a dream because we didn’t know that being vegetarian is not enough. I wonder if our poor planet can resist until 2019 :/
    Anyway, I live in Italy and we all tried in every possible way to convince the pope, since he chose the name Francesco (who was vegetarian) but he simply doesn’t care. monkeys called “francescani” are supposed to live like Francesco but they personally kill chickens. So I’m not optimistic. Last but don’t least: the pope said many times to use Italian or Spanish only to communicate, Arthur should translate his beautiful letter 🙂
    Happy Halloween and Happier World Vegan Day x

    Lovegan, thank you for your comments. We need to hope that The Pope wakes up understands why he should be a vegan. Every genuine religious leader in the World should be a vegan promoting kindness and life for all creatures.Thank you for your recommendation about translating the essay in Italian and Spanish. I will be sending the Pope the essay in English, Spanish, and Italian and will be sending many countries the essay in English and also translated in the appropriate language. Hopefully, a large number of vegans throughout the world will attempt to help persuade and convince Pope Francis to be the change that he really wants to see in the world. Promoting kindness and life for all animals is not a bad thing.
