Me too! I watched the meeting with the Cardinals this morning and that clinched it for me. This man is the real deal, it appears.

In his address to his brother Cardinals, he even mentioned the devil. I love it that he's not afraid to talk about the devil!!

In the reception line afterwards, it was very touching to see how he interacted with the Cardinals. They will be replaying this on EWTN. If you didn't catch it this morning you may want to see it.

May God bless Pope Francis.

Lookin' good. In his first homily he mentioned the devil as well...
When one does not profess Jesus Christ - I recall the phrase of Leon Bloy – “Whoever does not pray to God, prays to the devil.” When one does not profess Jesus Christ, one professes the worldliness of the devil.
Thank you, Jesus, for Pope Francis.

Have you ever noticed that the only word that liberals are afraid to utter, besides "God," is "hell"?

If they have to utter it at all, they often say, "H-E-double hockey sticks." I notice even self-described cynics doing this.

It seems that they don't want to be reminded of the reality of it.

For this reason, I use it as my cuss word of choice. I mean, if you can't take hell's name in vain, what can you? I encourage my kids to do the same.

It's fun when they gasp.
