I definitely celebrate a pope that shares the same name as one of my favourite saints. There's something bad-ass and radical about a man who wants the protective glass off the pope-mobile too - my kinda pope!
Tonight I read Pope Francis' inaugural homily and I must confess I teared up and felt my heart blossoming with hope, delight + excitement!
Honouring creation + the environment.
Protecting people, showing loving concern for each and every person (especially children, the elderly + needy)
Umm, can you say #fangirlswoon :)
Here are some of my most favourite illuminated quotes from his homily:
as the Book of Genesis tells us and as St. Francis of Assisi showed us.
It means respecting each of God’s creatures and respecting the environment in which we live. It means protecting people, showing loving concern for each & every person, especially children, the elderly, those in need, who are often the last we think about.”
- Pope Francis
