Viva il papa

We have a new pope!!

I have to say that watching Pope Francis emerge and greet that beautiful sea of Catholic men, women and children in St. Peter's square brought tears to my eyes. What an amazing thing to be Catholic.

It really hammered home to me the reality of the community of the Universal Church. We are one, and we have been blessed with a humble servant to lead us.

I don't have much to say, except praise God for Pope Francis, and as he wished, lets all offer up our prayers for him as he begins this journey.
