We Have A Pope!


(pictures from cnn.com)

Habemus papam!

The words I have been waiting for the past two days since the conclave. The bonus is that, the chosen one is the very one I had predicted: Cardinal Ratzinger. His name was on my mind quite prominently as I saw him the obvious choice to keep the Church at the center for a while before we make any further broader or sweeping changes that some are seeking.

"Dear brothers and sisters, after the great Pope John Paul II, the cardinals have elected me -- a simple, humble worker in the vineyard of the Lord," he said.

So, we welcome Pope Benedict XVI!

Thank You to Someone who woke me up from WONDERLAND at 1205am, I did not answer the phone, followed by SMS - White Smoke, I was like "Dun bluff lah - one of those again". I crawled out from bed switched on Channelnewsaisa - A New Pope has been elected. At the back of my mind i was thinking must be the "Rat". I woke the whole fam up, and mum went today is daddie's birthday 20th and here u are at 1210am so excited about New Pope not wished yr dad Happy Birthday yet. I was following "Bookies" very closely - article even wrote Priests were betting oso - overseas.

Dad was like Go & Sleep wat time now, u need to wake up later......to go work, u believe i slept? sneaked back to watch till 1am. (watched in the dark) saw the blessings, fr vaz being interviewed.

fr aloy there goes my WOMEN PRIESTS, Abortion, Pills..............and i been getting calls today " Do you know Rat is very conserve/strict?????
remembered i think fr aloy said before "Rat is one of those strictest around - read abt it in Newpaper before oso".

i thought i could have gone back to sleep i was 3/4 gone till 2am i was still receving smses from catholic clients. Pray for New Pope. i suan my clients - very close to them, PRAY FOR ME 1ST LAH.

He look sibeh STRICT, to tell u the truth i scared a bit - he dun look the grandpaly type where SPARE THE ROD & SPOIL GRANDCHILDREN kind. i noe fr aloy HAPPIE, JUDEGAL at last "scared of someone". he looks like sum discipline master.......but since 1981 been very close to Ex-Pope. dun pray2, head of cardinals kind of thingy.........can speak 10 languages.

Hi Fr Aloy. Impressive blog .. I hope and pray that with Benedict XVI, there will be a 'revival' of sacred tradition and scripture in the Church, afterall, they are our 2 main pillars. btw, as entertaining as you are Jude_gal, why don't you write your own blog? Seems like you need to vent alot too :)
