I am so overwhelmed with joy at the election of our new Pope. Pope Francis I. Love it! My cup runneth over at the sheer humility and holiness of our new Papa! We are so blessed.!
With all of the arrogant leaders we have in this country it is so uplifting to see someone so humble. I just heard on Catholic radio an interview of a cardinal by Raymond Arroyo. The cardinal said the new pope went to pick up his bags from wherever he was staying during the conclave. He then proceeded to ask how much he owed for his room and board. Blew me away!
Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty,
my memory, my understanding,
and my entire will,
All I have and call my own.
You have given all to me.
To you, Lord, I return it.
Everything is yours; do with it what you will.
Give me only your love and your grace,
that is enough for me.
Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Mother Mary, Mother of the Holy Church, bless him and keep him under your holy mantle.
Dt. Francis Xavier pray for our new pope, St. Francis of Assisi pray for our new pope.
