New Pope

Thursday, March 14, 2013

It is refreshing to hear about the new Pope. I am so excited that he is one of us. I live the 'simple life' principles of St. Francis. To have the leader of the Church embrace this so thoroughly as to even take the name Francis is more than I ever dreamed possible. IMHO, this is truly a step in the right direction.

    The Catholic Church so needs a good leader. Let's hope this is the right leader. He certainly is showing early signs. emoticon

    I really like the fact that he is so humble.

    I find it interesting that already he is doing things the simple way such as taking a bus to go get his belongings and pay his hotel bill.

    I agree wholeheartedly Patricia!! I sure hope this guy speaks English so I can understand him.. Our Church needs just the person, like Pope John XXIII was at the time..

    "Tis a gift to be simple..." Though not Catholic myself, I too have admired Saint Francis. God bless you on your journey to a healthy lifestyle to enjoy your grands - and GREAT grands!
