Do you ‘get the memo’ delivered by the actions and example of our Papa?




…and a tidbit of news of my own!


I just had to reblog this from Biltrix….! Brilliant. The more I learn about our new Papa, the more I like him.
To add a little news of my own:– A colleague approached me today to tell me about the experience her daughter had on meeting our new Pope at after conference in Argentina. She was catching the tube back home and he was on the same tube (he as a Bishop then). They chatted about the conference and asked questions to and fro. He found out that she was heavily involved with ALPHA, and at the end of the trip his parting words to her were: ‘I am blessed to have met such a young Catholic with God in her eyes.’
What a beautiful thing to say….and now the once marvellous Bishop is Christ’s representative here on earth…the leader of the Universal Church. I’m so pleased this anecdote was shared with me, so I in turn thought that this little story will warm the cockles of your hearts as well.


I’m amazed at how fast we are getting to know our new Pope.

This deer is just the business, chewing things over! I think he’ll be a regular in the Salmon’s neck of the woods.
