We have a pope!
By the grace of God, we have Pope Francis, by all accounts a humble shepherd of faith. It has occurred to me before that when Jesus gave authority to his apostles, and in particular St. Peter, there came with it an inherent duty of love from the sheep to actually listen to their shepherds. It is easy to point a finger at the pope and blame him for everything or expect everything from him, but we do forget how that might actually work... St. Francis Xavier, St. Francis of Assissi, pray for Pope Francis!
