Update on March 12, 2013

It's raining here in the NE.  In Rome, 115 Cardinals have sequestered themselves in their sacred room, behind closed doors, until there is a unanimous vote.  Eventually, white smoke will rise from the Vatican, the sign that a new POPE has been chosen by a unanimous vote of the 115.  There is no cry for money and there are no cries of injustice.   Catholics will honor that choice made by 115 Cardinals, with celebrations and a new HOPE for a better tomorrow and a NEW direction of Leadership amongst those of the Catholic Church, the Catholic faith.  The Catholic Church has many problems regarding heinous acts that involve Cardinals, Priests and those who serve the Catholic Church.  There is no denying that.  The Catholic Church, as all churches and faiths, are clearly separated in the US Constitution.  We are of a different faith, or mixed faiths, or of no faith, or of some other spiritual belief system that falls under the "faith category."   As some of us wonder. some of us wait, some of us don't care... it certainly must be a good feeling to trust those who are in the position of power, to make wise decisions based upon what is good for the populous.  Just thinking out loud...
