Heard Francis rides the bus.

Does he let same-sex couples ride the bus?


Are ordained women allowed on the bus?


Wanted to pause and acknowledge that 12 years ago today, my blood sister, Karen, died from complications of multiple sclerosis.

Blowing bubbles your way, dear one.


Pope Francis has a kind and gentle face. I've read that he was an effective pastor in Argentina, and worked diligently on behalf of the poor. And unfortunately, Flann, there are still too many who are not allowed on the bus, no matter where the bus is located.

Thinking of you and Karen. Hugs.


Interesting tibit about the new Pope. He only has one lung. The other was removed when he was a teenager.


A review of what the Pope wore during Mass yesterday:

"The Pope, wearing a fabulous vintage chiffon-lined Dior gold lame gown
over a silk Vera Wang empire waist tulle cocktail dress, accessorized with a three-foot House of Whoville hat and the ruby slippers Judy Garland wore in the Wizard of Oz, on his way to tell us it's Wrong to be Gay."


Great fashion review Flann.

I just heard he is 77 years old. Guess he's waited a long time for this promotion.

Endless bless you's on the memory of Karen.


I hoped for better, but he sounds like a chip off the old block (aka Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI).

I cannot imagine that his dedication to economic justice will last long in the luxurious life he will have as His Holiness.

He doesn't allow homosexuals to ride the bus, campaigned against same-sex marriage in Argentina (which passed anyway), campaigned against same-sex parents adopting children because it's child abuse (huh?), and, as expected, thinks abortion is murder and that women don't have the good sense to (a) participate in leadership roles in the Church and (b) control their own bodies.

He was involved in a scandal in Argentina while he was cardinal, not involving children or mismanagement of funds. Some journalists accused him of plotting with the dictator in the death of two priests who he did not protect.

Maybe he's the best candidate of all. Makes you wonder what the others were like.
