White smoke at the Vatican. A new Pope has been selected!
Pickpocket’s paradise down there.
I hope he calls himself Pope John Benedict.
Same here. I'm enjoying watching them all happy and excited about it.
I’m hoping for Cardinal Raymond Burke from USA.
Bandwidth is a problem here; the EWTN feed is higher quality but it lags too much for me.
I’m streaming Vatican Radio/Video, here:
Quality of video is poor, but it’s an option for us slowww internet folks.
If he calls himself “Peter(Pedro)”, YOU HAD BETTER GET TO CHURCH AND CONFESS!!!!
I don’t recall this much of an organized display when they announced Pope Benedict. I’m thinking I must have missed it, although I remember watching Pope JPII’s funeral. I was too young to watch when he was elected to the papacy.
It will be interesting to see who they have chosen. Especially for someone like me who is still contemplating coming back - it’s a long road, but a good one. I recently attended several Latin Masses, and even though I do not understand much of it, it’s an interesting change from the masses I attended growing up. Plus, the monsignors seem more open to my coming back - based upon a ‘good thorough confession’ vs. the pastor of our local parish that wants me to go through a year of RCIA, and several other things, even though I am already confirmed. (It may be beneficial in many ways, but it’s not like I don’t know my catechism any longer... lol)
Anyway, I’m glad I could come here on FR and not subject myself to the type of ridicule I see on Facebook. It gets extremely tiresome to hear so many disparaging remarks when my experience within the Church was so positive, personally.
Interesting in what way? (Not a sarcastic question, btw - just curious)
You might check out this Youtube live stream. It has excellent quality:
Me too. It’s very exciting
If it continues to work like Nostradamus predictions, you can get anything.
E.g., “Peter the Roman.”
The next pope, the seat of Peter, will be the Bishop of Rome. Peter the Roman.
Now if Rome is destroyed during his papacy and there is not another pope... I’ll give the prediction some respect.
The tradition and suspense is awesome.
God bless and keep you and welcome Home! Salvation posts the Baltimore Catechism, and I will send you the link later. It’s good to read as a refresher!
Here we go!
Those Swiss Guards and all gonna catch cold and call in sick tomorrow!
There’s always one, isn’t there? Gotta be the turd in the punchbowl.
Benedict had a very big ceremony!
Thanks Tom, that did hit my sweet spot of quality and bandwidth...
