Trying to trust the Holy Spirit

/ 19 April 2005

We have a new pope — Josef Cardinal Ratzinger, elected today and taking up the name of Benedict XVI. I am trying very hard to remember that the Holy Spirit was involved in this process, but frankly, in my humanness, I just can’t see it yet. I know that there could have been worse choices, but there also could have been much better choices (again, IMHO).
