Modern technology mixed with the 2000 year old office of the Bishop of Rome. We awaited for the announcement with the more than half a million people in St. Peter's Square and more than a billion Catholics worldwide. We streamed the broadcast online, while the girls recorded and photographed the ceremony with their iPods the historic moment.
The announcement came, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, S.J., Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina will ascend the Chair of St. Peter as Pope Francis. Viva il Papa!
"The modern mind will accept nothing on authority, but will accept anything on no authority. Say that the Bible or the Pope says so and it will be dismissed without further examination. But preface your remark with “I think I heard somewhere,” or, try but fail to remember the name of some professor who might have said “such-and-such,” and it will be immediately accepted as an unshakable fact."-G.K. Chesterton
