White Smoke, Singing, Bells … and Prayer


I’m watching the live stream from St. Peter’s Square with tears in my eyes. White smoke signals the choosing of a new pope. This is an historic moment in the life of our Catholic church and the world. The bells are ringing, crowds are singing and chanting “Viva Il Papa!.”

“Pray with great confidence based upon the goodness and infinite generosity of God and the promises of Jesus Christ: God is a spring of living water which flows into the hearts of those who pray.”–St. Louis-Marie De Montfort
