Rome. Glory be upon THE LORD for HE has blessed us!
In a sudden and strange turn of events, a new Pope has been selected in the Vatican. After the last pope had died recently under mysterious circumstances, Italy faced a moral and institutional crisis. It seems like the Vatican wanted to play safe: The new head of the Catholic church is a longstanding diplomat and has been serving as foreign minister for several years. How the new pope will be able to unite his two roles as quasi-dictator of the Vatican and representative of a democratic state is yet unclear.
This doesn’t seem to have concerned the millions of catholics turning out all over the world to celebrate their new spiritual leader.
The Pope is expected to choose the name of Obturatius I. and appear publicly for the first time soon.
Pater noster, qui es in caelis:
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo, et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie.
Et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in temptationem,
sed libera nos a malo.
Quia tuum est regnum et potestas et gloria
