One year later…

March 13, 2014

Today is March 13, 2014. A year ago I stood in the Piazza di San Pietro as Pope Francis walked out onto the balcony to greet the world. What an exciting year it has been to see all that has taken place in the Church. I feel very fortunate to be here with a “front row seat” to all that is going on in the life of the Church.

The last few days have provided ample opportunity to reflect on the incredible experiences a year ago as the Church transitioned from Pope Benedict XVI to Pope Francis. Last night, Cardinal O’Brien and Greg Burke visited the college to share some of their reflections.

Here are some of the reflections I wrote a year ago as everything was taking place.

Pondering on the Papal Transition of 2013 from Rome

    I can’t remember if I mentioned to you that I am friends with the mother of a man attending seminary in Rome – his name is Deacon Taylor Reynolds. I hope you know him, but I assume there are many many, young men studying to be priests.
    And by the way, thank you for your posts. What history you have witnessed and shared through your front row seat!
    Nan
