    Wow! That was cool. He asked that we give him our blessings before he spoke.
    I was able to say the Our Father and the Hail Mary along with him. And receive his blessings. I got chills.

    Peace.

    I'm not Catholic, but it's all been very interesting to me anyway.
    Not the prayer he spoke- but it embodies the way of life of St. Francis and it appears to fit the new Pope and the life he lead as a Cardinal.

    The White House statement on Pope Francis I

    The White House
    Office of the Press Secretary

    Statement from the President on His Holiness Pope Francis

    On behalf of the American people, Michelle and I offer our warm wishes to His Holiness Pope Francis as he ascends to the Chair of Saint Peter and begins his papacy. As a champion of the poor and the most vulnerable among us, he carries forth the message of love and compassion that has inspired the world for more than two thousand years—that in each other we see the face of God. As the first pope from the Americas, his selection also speaks to the strength and vitality of a region that is increasingly shaping our world, and alongside millions of Hispanic Americans, those of us in the United States share the joy of this historic day. Just as I appreciated our work with Pope Benedict XVI, I look forward to working with His Holiness to advance peace, security and dignity for our fellow human beings, regardless of their faith. We join with people around the world in offering our prayers for the Holy Father as he begins the sacred work of leading the Catholic Church in our modern world.

    Peace.

    Did anyone see the Bishop grab one of the guys in a suit on the balcony before the Pope came out! Pulled him back in by the arm quite roughly! What was up with that? I did not have sound when I saw it.

    There are no co-inky-dinks. I got chills reading this. Your sister obviously chose the right path for herself.
