And now, let's talk religion

I'm not going to lie. I'm pretty pumped about the new pope. 

Pope Francis feels like a breath of fresh air. I can't say that I had any particular problems with Pope Benedict (well, other than that whole nun crackdown business that happened on his watch), but I am excited to see what Pope Francis can do for the Catholic church.
 
I just have a good feeling about him. And does he look like a pope, or what?

  1. I'm excited too. He seems like something really new for our tired old church. I was ready to cry on Monday when I watched all those cardinals process into the Sistine chapel. It seemed to me that the Gospel and Jesus were nowhere in sight. All we saw was the corporate, institutional church on parade. Now I'm feeling hope. I was moved yesterday when he asked the crowd to pray for him before he blessed them.
