The occasional, often ill-considered thoughts of a Roman Catholic permanent deacon who is ever grateful to God for his existence. Despite the strangeness we encounter in this life, all the suffering we witness and endure, being is good, so good I am sometimes unable to contain my joy. Deo gratias!

Pope Francis

Pope Francis greets Rome and the World.

Yes, we have a Pope! And he is Pope Francis, the former Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Jorge Cardinal Bergoglio.

The College of Cardinals has surprised the world by choosing this holy, humble man. He is first in so many ways: the first Francis; the first Jesuit Pope; and not only the first Argentinian, but also the first Pope from the Americas.

As the people of Rome shouted from St. Peter's Square: Viva il Papa!
