Today Pope Francis, the 266th pope and first from South America, celebrated the official start of his papacy in St. Peter’s Square.  Approximately 200,000 onlookers cheered and waved flags representing a wealth of nations.  The pope’s message was as clear as the bright blue skies above, “I want to ask you to walk together, and take care of one another.”

Stressing that being a “protector” applies to all of humanity, Pope Francis called for mercy and compassion.  “I would like to ask all those who have positions of responsibility in economic, political and social life, and all men and women of goodwill: let us be protectors of creation, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment.”
