It was all so very exciting for me yesterday! That was the sixth papal election in my lifetime (yes, I’m that old). I was in Kindergarten when Blessed Pope John XXIII was elected. I remember seeing him on TV wearing that huge 1877 Palatine Tiara. I remember wondering how heavy it was on his head.

Then Venerable Pope Paul VI in 1963 when I was 9. He always looked stern to me, with those eyebrows. :-)

Then, there was the oh so short papacy of Pope John Paul I in 1978 - 33 days! Followed by of course, Blessed Pope John Paul II. Pope Benedict XVI in 2005, and now Pope Francis I.
