Nobody Expects Pope Francis…

… When I saw the white smoke I was all like ..

Then when they made the announcement from the balcony I was like, “Who?”

And I knew it was good.

He seems to be a humble man and lover of the poor; hence the taking of the poverello as his name. And yes, the Vatican confirmed it’s Francis of Assisi and not Francis Xavier. The rebuild my church Francis.

Viva il papa.

    Yes, we, catholics in Russia, didn’t expect him either, but I think the Holy Spirit made a good choice) The godparents of my son are from Argentina, they’ve been celebrating the whole night:)

    My dear Katrina -
    God is good!!!
    IMHO, our good Pope Francis may be a Jesuit, but I think he is a Franciscan in his heart. The more I hear about him, the more I love him. He sets a wonderful example for me personally.
    So many of us prayed for a holy Pope, and once again, God gave us far more than we imagined!
    Very best Lenten wishes to you!
