Our priest talked about being nervous when they announced the new pope because he did not know of him. The priests were watching together in the rectory like many of us were. However, after Pope Francis spoke our priest said he felt a feeling of peace and hope! and everyone he has talked with felt it too. I did too, immediately when I saw our new pope's face when he first came out:) This is a beautiful unifying moment for our church!! Pope Francis seems to be touching our individual needs as well as our communal ones.
