Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger…has been elected as the Pope of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church!
He has taken the name Pope Benedict XVI
Long live the Holy Father!
Edited to add….just after we heard the news we rushed off to Mass, I was unexpectedly interviewed by a news reporter as we left Mass…I was bubbling with joy at the election of our new Pontiff…babbling away about how delighted I am…I’m praying that I don’t sound like a complete freak if/when it’s played on the radio!!! (not that I care really, because I love Pope Benedict XVI and I thank God that I am a Catholic!)
