Having trouble typing .. my hands are shaking. It will take about 45 minutes before we see him. This is so exciting!
“We dont know who the new pontiff is yet, but I’ll bet you anything it won’t be Pope Liebowitz.”~ Joan Rivers
Dear Lord, guide our course.
Must admit, I prefer watching this on the BBC World Service than any of the US news networks.
No ... each one has unique qualities and gifts. I expect that whoever is chosen is a humble and sincerely prayerful individual. The weight, not only of the Catholic Church, but of the entire world, is on his shoulders. He prays for everyone and must also serve as a Head of State. We'll know shortly. Wow .. what a huge crowed .. 7:40 pm in Rome. The weather is cold and rainy but you would think the sun were shining looking at the joy on their faces. God bless our new pope!
Watching live online.
Special broadcast via Youtube (live streaming)
You know, there was once Pope Hilarius. Hilarious II?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Hilarius
Or Kramer being Kramer.
I hope not, but then I’m not even Catholic. Maybe an American pope could keep the jerk in the White House under control, though.
The bands are in place.
the music has stopped.
The Swiss Guard are brought to attention.
a flourish of horns is heard.
The crowd is singing as one......
Enlighten me please because I want to understand.
Why all the excitement about a new Pope?
Why all the excitement before a name is announced?
Can’t wait to go see the Vatican this summer when we go to Europe.
You must be thinking of Peter Ustinov! Yeah, he made a pretty good Nero! Another one was Anthony Andrews; he played him in “AD” on t.v. in mid-80s. He was a little bit too thin, but he was a more sadistic Nero!
I love it when they spell out il Poppa Ohio State band style. Sends chills up my spine !
No going be Paul Ringo LOL!
Just heard that it is the first muzzie pope. Barack Hussein O’Bama from Ireland.
I was fortunate to go with my Mother years ago, it is amazing!
You will love it ~
Much clearer picture than EWTN. Thanks.
Are listening to Limbaugh’s show today? A very interesting guy talking about the selection and who he thinks should not be choose.
I am fascinated by what the guy is saying.
