The Pope According to Philip

Yesterday after lunch I turned on the TV to start watching for smoke from the Sistine Chapel. 

Philip came into the room, pointed at this image and said,

"Look, the Pope!  That is the new Pope!"
When the station cut to a commercial he asked, "Where is the Pope?"
Luckily the keys to the church were not handed down to a bird sitting on top of a chimney.
Habemus Papam!
Three things I am loving about Pope Francis:
1. He asked for the people to pray that God would bless him in his ministry before bestowing his first blessing.
2. Hearing about how he lives in a simple apartment, cooks his own meals, and takes the bus to work. 
3. Taking the name Francis.
God bless our Holy Father!  Please pray for him!
