White Smoke

Looks like there's a new Pope elected into office.  I'm pretty surprised by how quick the turn around was.  If I recall correctly, I thought the election of the last pope was a while.  I certainly didn't anticipate them voting on a new one before Easter.  I don't know why I'm so surprised.

I'm actually looking forward to seeing what will come next.  I know the election of the last Pope wasn't so long ago, but I don't really remember much about it.  Last time, I also didn't have much of a vested interest in what was going on.  I think other things were making my life 'too busy' to care.  Also, I wasn't quite ready to become Catholic yet.  I mean, I suppose I could always read about the process on the internet somewhere, but something about watching it play out just seems so much more interesting.  I wish I would have been able to come home early today in time to see the white smoke on the news for myself!
