My thoughts on the new Pope!

Ok, really, so who cares what I think about the new Pope? Well probably no one.

But since it’s my blog, I’ll tell you anyway. You can choose to close this if you’d like.

John 17:21 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

I was raised Catholic, whatever that means to you, I’ve got my own thoughts on it, and I won’t tell you the good or the bad on my thoughts of it.

I can tell you what I’ve heard, I can tell you what I’ve experienced, but I won’t.

I will tell you that occasionally, I like to go to the Catholic Church. I still do some of the same things I always did, like look up the songs to see if we will be singing some of my favorites. I think about how my cute little peanut used to want to sit in the front row because she wanted to make sure that Jesus saw her.

I can almost say the whole mass pre-changing of some of the phrases from the Catholic Church because they are all pretty much the same. And some people think it’s wrong that they service is always the same, but me, I appreciate it. Now that I know the bible, I can tell you where some of those things come from. I love the tradition of it. You might not, but I do.

Is my life affected by the new Pope? Not really. Except that I was disappointed that it wasn’t Cardinal Maida. To me, I know him, so I want him to win! I was sad when I found out he didn’t vote because he was over 80.

Cardinal Maida
I think, and this is me thinking… We do a lot better job representing Jesus when we just love, honor, and respect each other.

I know, people bring up the bad things that priests have done, but I don’t think we would want anyone throwing all our stuff out there. We are ALL representatives of Christ, no matter our position.

I’m excited that the Vatican was able to come to a vote, being in Unity with the Father. I’m glad they are going into the Easter Season with a strong leader.

So those are my thoughts, let’s just love each other. Congratulations Pope Francis! You’re not the one I would have voted for, but no one gave me a ballot, so I’m glad you’re in your new position! May you lead more people to Jesus, may you speak life and truth, and love and grace to those you come in contact with!

Acts 4:32 All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had
