Look at him smiling! I don't think I ever saw Benedict XVI smile like that. Pope Francis looks good with a smile on him!

More than one pope was elected today in the imagination of some fifth grade boys.

In school we witnessed, with anticipation, the live footage of the unveiling of our new pope.

Prior to the announcement of Pope Francis, I went to the cafeteria to gather my students. A table of eight, respectful, 5th grade boys had brown paper bags upon their heads as hats.

Being the understanding teacher that I am, I did not reprimand them but was inquisitive about their actions. I asked them what they were doing with their lunch bags on their heads. They all said they had just been elected pope.

Cleverness was flowing from these fine young men like the bellowing smoke from the Sistine Chapel. I said that they may only wear their “pope hats” if they can tell me its proper name.

One minute later, a boy came back to me and said, “mitre.” One by one, they rattled off, "mitre."

I followed through with my promise.

Viva il Papa(s)!

It's my understanding that our new Pope took the name Francis for [Francis] Xavier, of the Jesuits ... just what I recently heard.

My mistake ... He's taken the name of Francis after the very humble St. Francis of Assisi ! ! ! !
