18 MAR 13

Habemus Papam ...
The news on TV is of the new pope
and his official investiture at a mass
to be held tomorrow. 
Francis I.
The seventh pope in my lifetime.

Cannot get excited about it.
Just another old man in a white cassock,
who resides in Rome,
and mumbles beatitudes in Latin.


PS: The date is 27 May 13.
This Pope may change my mind about the effectiveness
of his office. He's already reaching out to atheists and
informing them that Heaven may also accept them if they
are truly good people, though they be unbelievers.
