Like many people who meet Pope Francis I, a region priest says he was struck by the pontiff's humanity when the two met last month in Rome.
Pope Francis is the first pontiff to reach into the 13th century and choose the name of a humble Christian called St. Francis of Assisi. How significant for the Catholic Church and for Orthodox and Protestant Christians!
Crowds gather in St. Peter's Square for the inauguration Mass for Pope Francis at the Vatican on Tuesday.
As our cardinals gather to elect our next pope, these are thoughts from a loyal Catholic laywoman:
Alexandra and Sam Foster, Millburg, Michigan
VATICAN CITY | A senior cardinal staunchly defended Pope Benedict XVI from "petty gossip" on Sunday as the pontiff maintained his silence on mounting sex abuse cover-up accusations during his Easter message.
AOSTA, Italy | Pope Benedict XVI emerged smiling from the hospital Friday after undergoing surgery for a broken wrist due to a fall at his Alpine vacation chalet. Doctors said his right arm would be in a cast for a month.
