We Have a New Pope!

Our new Holy Father is Pope Francis, and he is the first non-European pope. Pope Francis is from Argentina. You can find more about our new pope here.

Here are some pictures below. If you want to make the picture bigger, click on it. :)

  1. I was SO very very excited when I saw the white smoke. We were watching it Live so we were blessed with a plenary indulgence. :) It was really amazing! I hope he is just as good a pope as Pope John Paul II an Pope Benedict XVI!

  5. Oh, Helen, live? I was watching it live on the computer. Did I get a plenary indulgence, too? I didn't know that.

  6. Yeah, I think my dad might have been watching it during his lunch break or something...I was stuck in a Bio elive. :-/

    Olivia, you would probably get a plenary indulgence, too. I don't see how watching it on the computer is really any different from watching on your TV. :)

  8. Oooh...I have no idea. I'm not an expert on indulgences, I could be wrong about what I said above. I think these questions would be better addressed to a priest than a layman like me. ;)

  9. I was at school. Our fifth thru eighth grade classes have only about 20 kids total, so we went into the teacher's lounge. My friend and I almost did something totally embarrassing... like hug the people in front of us or get up and dance :)
    I'm so happy that we have a great Pope! Viva il Papa!!!
