Inside the conclave: extra omnes
to habemus papam

Associated Press, by Rachel Zoll

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 3/14/2013 9:17:54 PM

Vatican City-Three rounds of ballots had been cast with no winner, but it was becoming clear which way this conclave was headed. When the cardinals broke for lunch, Sean O´Malley of Boston sat down next to his Argentine friend, Jorge Bergoglio. "He seemed very weighed down by what was happening," O´Malley said. Hours later, the Buenos Aires archbishop would step before the frenzied masses packed into St. Peter´s Square as Francis, the first pope from the Americas. (Snip) When Francis returned to the chapel, "his first action was to go to a cardinal in a wheelchair

FTA: Then each man moved to the front and took an oath not to reveal what was about to occur: "we promise and swear not to break this secret in any way, either during or after the election of the new pontiff."

If that´s true, then how did this story get out? How do we know IF it´s even true?

The last Pope who said may God forgive you for what you have done, died shortly thereafter. Hope that doesn´t happen here. And I hope, now that we have a new Pope who will be around for a while, o´malley will stop campaigning and get back here and actually "heal" the Church in MA. It is so sad to go to mass and see all the empty pews. And people here are so hurt and disillusioned (and angry)I fear o´malley won´t be up to the job. He certainly hasn´t done any "healing" thus far.

I´m sure this Godly man is as good as they come and well worthy of the office. Having said that, though, I wish he were ten years younger. With the fractured condition of the Catholic Church today and the array of secular enemies she faces Il Papa is going to have a lot of work to do. May God grant him many more years of healthy life.

Of all the attributes of the Church, one of the most important is continuity. Whether this Pope serves two years, ten, or more, the Church is bigger than one man (other than Christ) and will continue to find holy men to lead it, mostly by example. The age of the Pope bothers me not at all. Trust in the Spirit.

Reply 16 - Posted by: udanja99, 3/15/2013 9:10:53 AM     (No. 9226198)

The Catholic Church is NOT fractured. That´s a myth that the media likes to spread whenever the Church is in the news. They do it every year at Easter too.

I´m sorry for what #13 reports about the Church in Massachusetts, but it probably has more to do with that state and it´s leftist secular bent than with the Church. Here in Virginia, my local parish in a rural area is standing room only at each of the 6 masses each weekend. Fortunately we built our church on farm land with lots of acreage so we have plenty of room for expansion - which we´ve been doing continuously for the last 20 years. We keep running out of room.

This is a beautiful article. I don´t know why, but I can´t stop weeping. Although all are of God, we don´t often meet people who are truly touched by God, shining through and through with His Presence. When you do, you just know. I just know with this Pope. He is so different from those we know as leaders. It´s like finally getting pure, delicious water when you´ve been dying of thirst. God has heard our prayers and has lifted us up out of the agony of our confusion and despair. Sorry that this is so flowery, but I´m just so moved for reasons too numerous to list.

#7 & #24, the author also reports: “But as is customary, the cardinals involved share memories of their experience.” That statement kinda gave me a confort zone to go ahead and post what I thought was a truly remarkable account, even more so because it was devoid of the snarkiness typical to other MSM articles, including from the AP.

I share #15’s sentiment on Pope Francis’ age...doesn’t bother me at all and indeed is in line with what I hoped for, as I sensed there was a need for a seasoned Pope who could extend the period of transition we saw under Pope Benedict’s brief tenure while also serving as a role model, teacher, and molder of the some of the younger dynamic Cardinals we’ve read about over the last month or so and the others who are moving up in the Church hierarchy. Some may recall that I hoped for the selection of another Cardinal who just turned 80 for the very same reason...Pope Francis meets that felt need, and so very much more! This sentiment from a non-Catholic who believes the Pope will serve as an example of how other denominations should approach their ministry.

Taking the article on its face, except for "frenzied masses" [so as not to go off track or be here all evening; I saw the energy of excitement; I sure didn´t see "frenzy"], what strikes me is a man of decency, humility, service, and accomplishment ascending to an new, perhaps unanticipated, humility. If I am correct, it is a fine lesson for any Pope, any leader, for any man.
