>>> how can you not have hope? those faces glisten with the excitement and possibility that the world's largest church could have a lead history will deliver us to an era of openness, honesty, compassion, and social justice . all this could happen because francis i, that's the name he took, holds tremendous power. as we watched him tonight present himself, we saw how he was calling the shots minute to minute, not operating according to the prescribed choreography directed to him by the vatican officials there. i believe that's a good small sign perhaps of things to come. the last thing we need is a pope locked into the woodwork over there. as a catholic i am so hopeful. i want a pope who cares about the welfare of the hull bell people, those without power.
