Overheard on... NPR
"They've elected a new Pope."
For those of you non-Catholics (or Catholics for that matter) who are wondering what all of this Pope busines means keep in mind the role he plays on focusing resources and support. That said.. I am terribly glad he selected the name Francis.
To understand who this Pope might be, here's the Prayer to St. Francis... I hope it gives us a clue:
Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred,
let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant
that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
