Yes, my lefty critics, I who have quoted popes on economic policy have read Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel), released recently by Pope Francis. It has drawn attention for its rough treatment of capitalism. I’m glad it’s an “apostolic exhortation,” a statement that does not rise to the level of a papal encyclical.

I'm still exploring a run for Congress even though another challenger has announced his candidacy. Competing against another challenger and a 16-year incumbent, I would have to pull a Jean Stothert and blow away the field.

We're on the one road,
Sharing the one load,
We're on the road to God knows where.
We're on the one road,
It may be the wrong road,
But we're together now who cares?
North men, South men, comrades all,
Dublin, Belfast, Cork, and Donegal.
We're on the one road swinging along,
Singing a soldier's song.

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum. That's Latin for: I announce to you a great joy. It's how the introduction of a new pope begins. That's what you saw bubbling up in St. Peter's Square: pure joy. The guy on the balcony is as close as we get to God in this life. He's a sinner, but he's our link to Peter and thus to the One who commissioned Peter to lead the church. Viva il Papa.

That's our son, Oto, on the right side of the picture, kneeling at the communion rail at the Mass celebrated by the cardinals before they entered the Sistine Chapel for the conclave on Tuesday. The picture was at www.demotix.com. I need some space space space space space.
We think that's Oto beneath the arrow. Only a mother's radar was able to detect it. The picture was at www.religionnews.com. . .. need space space space space space space.
Oto, wearing a blue jacket and waving an American flag, can be seen at 1:15 and 2:42. The video is from the Vatican Television Center.
