There is so much poetry inherent in the religious ritual of the Vatican it's hard to know where to start and stop - but you've caught a number of moments wonderfully recently!

Behind all the pomp and ceremony the Church needs a clear head, that's for sure.

Yes, Jem, the Church knows how to get our attention

And, yes, Adelaide, a clear head would certainly be a blessing. As one who went to school to the Jesuits, I have hopes but no illusions.

Thanks, Juliet, that's good to know.

There's a lot to like in how he's proceeded so far.But so far is only so far. As you say, Monika, wait and see. And, if you are so inclined, pray.
