Cardinals pay before voting.

Noll Hall was decorated with the Papal flag
and the colors of the flag.
Fitting decorations since Father Keene's talk was about
the signal of white smoke announcing
to the world "Habemus Papum!"- "We have a Pope!"

our marvelous speaker- Father Keene
Father teased about the "holy smoke."

The St. Mary Women's Association
who not only planned the breakfast,
but provided the food and decorated the hall.
The posters with attached newspaper articles
were provided by Father Keene.

What a wonderful post. I followed the election from beginning to end and am thrilled with the selection. Since I am reading "A Right to Be Merry" I have been think much about St. Francis of Assisi because of his connection for Clare and the Poor Clares. I think he is going to be a wonderful Pope. Loved seeing all the pictures. genie
