    May God give him the strength, fortitude, patience, wisdom and all graces to do what God calls him to do.

    Awesome you can see it on EWTN. I have to slog along with CBS, who managed to find the two Ordain Womyn malcontents and give them face time.

    Viva Papa Francesco!

  • Hermann

    Congratulations to all my catholic brethren!

      Thank you, Hermann, elder brother of ours in the faith.

    WOW. I wasn’t expecting THAT! What a choice!!! A man of the people. The choice of the name Francis says he is a man of peace, and a re-builder. Very humble. My prayers are with Francis 1.

      My first thought — “make me a channel of Your peace.”

      My second thought — a Latino!

    Let’s all keep Pope Francis I in our prayers!
