Viva il Papa!
There is nothing like the election of a new Pope for drama and excitement!
This is already a Pope of "firsts" - the first Latin American Pope, the first Jesuit Pope, the first Pope Francis...
Already our new Holy Father is the focus of our prayer, affection and, indeed, curiosity.
Let us pray for him earnestly as he faces his daunting mission.
As a young man, Pope Francis said yes to the call of the Lord to follow Him as a member of a religious order. I encourage you too to answer the Lord's call with confidence.
