Seven years ago today I watched Pope Benedict XVI become the 265th Pontiff. I was at work watching the coverage on a small black and white TV set up at my desk. I’m not sure why I didn’t just have it streaming online – there was internet 7 years ago right? Maybe I didn’t know about EWTN or Catholic media since I was still in RCIA. I guess I didn’t have access to top secret Vatican websites only privy to full fledged card carrying Papists or something like that.
Where were you when you heard those words, Habemus papem?
Things I am going to do to celebrate: Make a cake and drink German beer, even though I don’t need an excuse for cake. Or beer.
