"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Habemas Papam!

We have a pope!   White smoke!

What a beautiful scene in St. Peter's Square!   The happiness of believers waiting to meet the new Vicar of Christ.

The new pope is... Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Cardinal of Buenos Aires, Argentina.   The first South American Pope and the first Jesuit Pope.   God bless him!
