And, Pope Francis wears Catholic Glasses! Pope Francis wears eye glasses!!
Yes!!! 👓 YES!!!!!!!
I got my prayers answered.
A humble, prayerful, holy POPE!
Pope Francis asked us to ask God to Bless him, first, then Pope Francis donned a simple stole and Blessed Us, with his special, very Indulgenced “Urbi Et Orbi” blessing. Pope Francis is from Buenas Arias, Argentina. He is the first Jesuit elected Pope. He is the first Latin American elected Pope, and he is the first Pope to take the name “Francis.” I wonder which Saint Francis he is named after?
I am so glad, that he is not ostentatious!
I was worried that a showy cardinal would be elected. Pope Francis reminds me of Pope Paul VI. Not flashy. Not overly religious, but a humble and very prayerful Pope. Argentina and Latin America must be very proud of him. I am grateful to the Holy Spirit and to the other Cardinals for electing him as our 265th Pope, and Successor of Peter.
Pope Francis prayed an Our Father, Hail Mary and a Glory Be in Latin or Spanish before his Urbi Et Orbi Blessing.
That proves to me, that the right Pope was elected.
Pope Francis, I will pray for you and your daily and monthly prayer intentions every day. And, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s Prayer Intentions for March 2013, until you change them in the future.
(Vatican Radio) Pope Benedict XVI has met parish priests and clergy of the Diocese of Rome in the Paul VI Hall at the Vatican. Led by Cardinal Vicar Agostino Vallini and auxiliary bishops, they greeted Benedict XVI with great affection and prolonged applause. Emer McCarthy reports:
The reform of the liturgy, the question of ecclesiology left wide open since Vatican I, Revelation and how we communicate it to the modern word, ecumenism and our relations with other religions but most importantly what it was really like being at the heart of the Second Vatican Council.
Despite beginning with an apology for his age and how he was unable to prepare a ‘great’ discourse, Pope Benedict held the priests of Rome captive for 46 minutes on Thursday in an unscripted speech – or chat as he termed it – on the Great Ecumenical council which he attended first as a special advisor to Cardinal Frings of Cologne, and then in his own right as a theological expert.
It was a sort of master class by a renowned professor and perhaps one of the last great witnesses of the Council. Pope Benedict’s voice was clear and strong as spoke of the great Constitutions that emerged from years of work by the Council Fathers.
He spoke of the hope and enthusiasm of those attending that the Vatican Council, that it would lead to a reform and renewal in the Church. He spoke of the many heated discussions over the liturgy, Paul VI’s intervention in the debate over Revelation and the hermeneutic of Scriptural tradition of how he gave Council father’s 14 formulas from which to choose to complete their document.

When I lived in MO, I got jobs without any problem. When I got to MI, getting a job, was hell on earth. I did not want to get schooled by the Laborers Union, because they looked like a Democratic Party Headquarters’ Office. I wasn’t a Democrat. I, as a woman, hated the visual harassments. Plastered all over their walls were 4 ft x 6 ft posters of Democrats running for political office. I know this is a serious “conflict of interest” for Democrats and Businesses associated with them. Unions are thugs. And, I hated their bullshit. Getting a good job is hard enough. I do not need coercion, on who to vote for. I can do that “all by myself.” I’m a big girl, now.
I agree with Michigan’s Governor Rick Synder.
Since Rev. Robert Sirico is under investigation – choosing his entrepreneurial business called “The Acton Institute” is now a “Conflict of Interest” that will cause the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) much embarrassment in the future.
The USCCB has made a mistake in choosing “The Acton Institute” as their “Consulting Firm.” I think that the Bishops, should rescind this decisions! The open-letter to Rome that is online right now, called “The Sirico Brief” is proof that the information in that Brief, has been presented to The Vatican for an Investigation. While a priest and his activities in all his endeavors are under investigation or has been requested by the laity, to be investigated, I think you USCCB should “reconsider” your decision to allow “The Acton Insitute” to be your Consulting Firm.
Read: The “Sirico Brief” (online) and then decide whether you want to risk later embarrassments for having chosen “The Acton Institute” to be your new “Consulting Firm.”
Given that on Friday, November 10, 2012 Pope Benedict XVI decried the violences of “Organized Crime Syndicates” and given that Rev. Robert Sirico is related to 5 Mafia Families – and was accused of having threatened a local business woman, with “ruin” by his Mafia Family as late as 2007.
So, I think the USCCB, must NOT hire “The Acton Institute,” to do their consulting work, for them. It would be a grave mistake to allow it.
I do not think the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops want the Mafia, to make in-roads into the Catholic Church, via “The Acton Institute.”
In My Humble Opinion, it would be the biggest mistake of their lives, and for generations to come. Recall the Mob uses “front businesses,” to look credible.
If I end up dead, then you’ll know what happened. Pray for me, in case I go to Purgatory. You many not like me, but pray for me anyways. I just may make it into heaven, by your prayers….Or I’ll ask God to hit you up side the head, to remind you to pray for me. :’(
Yet, I have Saint Joan of Arc as my Patron Saint, and I guess that I am following in her footsteps, in coming forward.
I knew this was coming for Costa Rica. They allowed UNSAID and other UN Volunteers that “help” cause trouble. And, their legalized prostitution is advertised all over their newspapers, and websites. Frankly, it is a beautiful country, but I would not feel safe nor respected living there. Whose fault is this? Tear it out by the “ROOTS” NOW!
