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!
