"Qui sibi nomen imposuit Franciscum"
"Who has taken the name Francis"
The symbology is perfect. St. Francis, who heard the call from Jesus to rebuild the Church!
LifeSiteNews reports that the new Pope had this to say about "homosexual marriage":
"Let's not be naive, we're not talking about a simple political battle; it is a destructive pretension against the plan of God," wrote Cardinal Bergoglio in a letter sent to the monasteries of Buenos Aires. "We are not talking about a mere bill, but rather a machination of the Father of Lies that seeks to confuse and deceive the children of God."Dear readers, this could be a quote from the PublicVigil blog! These words brought tears of joy to my eyes. Thank you Holy Spirit! We do not deserve such a Pope! God is abundantly merciful!
Today I got my car back from the mechanic. It was broken and now it is fixed. It feels like I have a new car.
And now we have a "holy mechanic" at the head of the universal Church! Blessed be God forever! And just as in the times of St. Francis, the church is in dire need of fixing -- both physically and spiritually. All of creation is rejoicing. The angels in Heaven are singing alleluias.
Today the symbology of the Rosary was also perfect. It was the glorious mysteries. Beginning with the Resurrection of Our Lord! I had just received the news of the new Pope Francis when I began reciting the glorious mysteries. First the Resurrection, then the Ascension, then the coming of the Holy Spirit, then the Assumption of Mary into Heaven, and finally the Crowning of Mary -- Queen of Heaven!
Oh dear sweet Virgin Mary, pray for us! Protect Christ's Holy Church.
