Where were you when the new pope was announced? And how about the time before this, when they made the announcement for Holy Father Benedict XVI?
Both times I was hanging by the television, waiting, waiting. Both times were really close to school pick up time, which is 3:15 pm. This time I was a little late in picking the children up. It was okay, because as fortunate had it, that morning I'd told them to meet me after school in the school library. So they weren't hanging around looking for me outside the school.... The time before this, when it was B16 being announced, I heard it on the car radio in front of the school.
Coincidence, or do the Cardinals just like having the announcement made at school pick up time? God bless our new Holy Father! I pray God grants many good years to him.
