Ok -- it has been a few months now. What are your thoughts on Pope Francis?
Personally, I am thrilled and find him a breathe of renewed "hope" if that makes sense. While I appreciated Pope Benedict's orthodox knowledge, I absolutely LOVE Pope Francis' teaching heart. He connects with the people and doesn't seem to be trapped in what the 'norms' may have been. He is obviously here to serve.
If you have not had a chance to read some of his homilies let me know and I'll share some here! They are excellent!
