What an amazing start! What a nightmare for vatican security! Has anyone noticed he is not wearing the red shoes.

I am truly excited for this new Pope. I am not catholic; however, I pray this one can clean His house and perhaps it will trickle down to other Christian denominations.

Only one thing bugs me the Cardinal said.....”giving us a new Shepherd”.

The Lord is thy Shepard. There can be no other Shepard....perhaps an assistant Shepard, as I see true Pastors, Priests and Reverends.

As I stated, I am not catholic so maybe those words mean something else that I am not aware of.

Any catholics out there that can explain what he meant?

I'm not asking to cause trouble, just to understand. I and my fellow believers are very excited at having such a humble Pope.
