I hereby pray for his safety, and for a long and fruitful reign. A Holy Father who gets as many salvos from the sewer as this one got in just the first 30 seconds of his pontificate has to be doing something right!

Also, I have to love a Holy Father who loves cats.

We must all pray for the Pope as well as for all religious.

Funny, you usually hear of dogs in rectories. Cats are usually in the convent. (Not sure about fish.)

By the look on the face for this pontif's picture, I think the he is concerned about the owner of this blog. Whoever this Fr. Gonsalves is sounds to be somewhat stressed.

I wouldn't wish the job of being the pope on anyone! I am sure our Holy Father must feel very alone in such an awesome position. We must always remember to pray for our Holy Father.

Oh, anonymous, we had some lovely birthdays during mass this weekend in San Diego, and all got wonderful rounds of applause! And then the congregation were all told to extend their hands towards two congregants who were hoping to have a credit card approved, or were going to undertake some studies or something, and father improvised a collect prayer for this, which everyone repeated. Doubtless the benedictional properties of their good wishes were communicated through this act of mock consectation. It just had to be efficacious, I mean, everyone was SO well-meaning. Oh, and at communion a woman carrying a baby had it blessed by a female eucharistic monster, I mean, minister, who made the sign of the cross on its little forehead, just like priests used to do, even though she is neither a priest or a deacon, and has no power to impart benedictions. So it was a completely meaningless act, but destructive nonetheless.

Frankly, Vic the Veg, I think the pontiff is more concerned about the above than about an orthodox member of the Clergy like Fr. Gonzalez, God bless him. Did you say you worked for Oregon Catholic Press?
