A Spectacular Choice


The Cardinals have spoken, their voices giving election
to a new Pope on whose shoulders the responsibility:
spiritually and ethically, of global Roman Catholicism
firmly rests. And amid the celebrations, and my own
congratulations, to the marked departure from the
Eurocentric manner in which most previous
Pontiffs were routinely elected, I say with
deep pride and unabashed admiration, in
relation to the papal elevation of this
humble, most worthy and Jesuit
Argentinian: “God bless and
counsel you Cardinal Jorge
Mario Bergogli; ” now, of
course, Your Holiness
Pope Francis the First.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
