A New Pope

Not sure if you listened to Fitzsimmons and Flores talk show on Monday, but we had Father Sylvester from St. Patrick’s on air to talk about the selection of a new Pope, Francis I.  I was born and raised Catholic…Irish Catholic at that, back in Jersey City…and if you listened, found out I am not a practicing Catholic.  However, I am very excited and pleased that the Church has a new Pontiff from Latin America, and a Jesuit too!!  My Dad went to St. Peter’s, a Jesuit college in Jersey City…and both my daughters have had Jesuit educations as well.  (Guess it skips generations)  I believe Pope Francis will bring a new spirit of service and compassion to the world.  All the best to him and to you.
