This is the first photograph, the first glimpse I have had of our new Pope.
I cannot express what an impression this has made on me.

  2. I read that he has done the same at a maternity hospital with the women there and also for people with AIDS. It’s a very powerful image. It will be interesting to see how he does the footwashing on Holy Thursday at the Vatican.

      Yes, that will be interesting–and coming up soon!
      There is more information about him coming out every day. I guess we are learning about the possible skeletons in his closet, good to have it all out there and I hope he addresses it with directness and honesty, and puts it all behind him.
