A Leaven in the World

St Peter's Basilica, Rome
'God, our Father,
by the promise You made
in the life, death and resurrection of
Christ, Your Son,
You bring together in Your Spirit,
from all the nations,
a people to be Your own. 
Keep the Church
faithful to its mission:
may it be a leaven in the world,
renewing us in Christ,
and transforming us into Your family.'

From the Roman Missal


  1. Nancy,

    Not long to go! We are all united across the world in prayer. May the cardinals listen to the Holy Spirit. May we soon be rejoicing and welcoming our new pope.

    God bless!

    1. I know. Not long. I am both calm and quiet inside, and (I'll admit it) slightly tense. I felt the same way the last time, which seems such a short while ago to me. Here we go again, waiting for the smoke....
