it became quickly apparent the world's catholics had a new pope when saint kilian's church bells began ringing non-stop yesterday afternoon. the first jesuit priest and the first from the "americas" ever - was elected pontiff yesterday. perhaps this will be a defining moment in history. I heard that upon hearing the news the people of italy abandoned their cars and ran towards the vatican hoping for a glimpse of the white smoke. I wish I were there to see it with them.
