A friend described Franciss voice over the Square, to the world, tonight as a soft whisper of love. How the world could use such a soothing sound from someone whose witness offers us a challenge.
VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis opened his first morning as pontiff by praying Thursday at Rome's main basilica dedicated to the Virgin Mary, a day after cardinals elected him the first pope from the Americas in a bid to revive a Catholic Church in crisis and give it a preacher with a humble touch.We must all remember to take more time to pray for this humble, holy warrior for G-d.
The former archbishop of Buenos Aires, Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, entered the St. Mary Major basilica through a side entrance just after 8 a.m. (0700 GMT) and left about 30 minutes later. http://www.miamiherald.com/2013/03/13/3283138/black-smoke-from-sistine-chapel.html#storylink=cpy
At last someone from the Americas.
European “Christians”, for example the one claiming that the wrong people won at the battle of Vienna, are jubilant that the conservatives are too stupid to have sniffed their trojan horse.
NOW, they’ll have Change.
I was joiking with my parish priest after the Lenten daily mass of saying that during the little over the one hour the folks were waiting for Pope Francis I to present himself saying to my parish pastor that the new Pope was calling the Rome bus system to ask for the bus routes information with the funny part that he is new to Rome and just got this new job; since he took the bus back home in Argentina. :)
God worked a miracle yesterday. :)
