Happy Memory

Happy Memory

Habemus-Papam-300x244As we approach Pope Benedict XVI's final day as Supreme Pontiff and Bishop of Rome, my attention was called back to the day he was elected, April 19, 2005, by Kelly Thatcher, who somehow resurrected what I wrote on that day. (Somehow, because in the transition to WordPress, that was one of the posts regrettably lost.) Because of the occasion, I decided to wade into the depths of the vast SQL database from the old site to pull out the post and manually re-enter it along with the comments because I think it provides a good glimpse of what our expectations were for this pontificate and how well they were fulfilled.
