Habemus Papam! His Holiness, Pope Francis
March 13, 2013
+from his first homily as Pope: I would like that all of us, after these days of grace, might have the courage – the courage – to walk in the presence of the Lord, with the Cross of the Lord: to build the Church on the Blood of the Lord, which is shed on the Cross, and to profess the one glory, Christ Crucified. In this way, the Church will go forward.
I will update any information here about our new holy father and his connection with the Order of Preachers! Pray for him!
