Cathedra vacua est

The Chair is empty.

It is a somber day for all Catholics.  As the doors to the papal residence closed and we got our last glimpse of our Pontiff, we are left with the memory of a truly great man.  And now we must reside in limbo until we see the white smoke billow up from the Sistine, and are strengthened again in knowing that we have a shepherd.  Rather than bog you down with my reflections upon this momentous occasion, or start placing bets on who will be elected; I will leave you with the words of a beautiful man.
