and there is no recount!
praise be to God!
God bless Pope Benedict XVI
viva il papa ratzi!
Praise God indeed! I am so happy. I was crying in joy and clapping here in my living room. Praise God, Praise God!
And, as Son #4 points out, the cardinals were at that point in the deliberations still bound by the supermajority rule, that is, one candidate had to receive two-thirds of the votes in order to be conclusive. Two-thirds on the third ballot! Take THAT, hopeful "progressives"!
I am just so totally psyched!
Thanks be to God! Thanks be to God!
Zteen and I were jumping up and down in the living room, and I was, OF COURSE, crying like a fiend.
God is good!
I was in a co-worker's office watching a live feed on his laptop ... so you can imagine how loony I looked screaming, "RATZINGER! WOOHOO!!!!" with tears also streaming down my face ... (good thing that he works for me ... he's used to my Catholic looniness!).
I was so happy that I forgot to pray for him.
I was very happy and then I read the St. Malachy prophesies and Gloria Oliviae . . . and now I'm a little freaked out . . . anyone know much about these?
How does the Gloria Oliviae apply to (former) Cardinal Ratzinger?
the so-called st. malachy prophesies are most likely very elaborate forgeries. some even go so far as to accuse the Jesuits for the forgeries; go figure!
freak out not, hon, God is in control.
I never hear better sense from anyone than I do from you, Micki. God has always been in control, even when things were happening that we didn't like, and He's not less in command now.
