Papal thumbs up

I noticed on the news tonight that Pope Francis gave a blessing to a young boy in Brazil today, and followed it with a thumbs up sign.

I know it’s a long way off from carrying forward the Church reforms stalled after Vatican II.

But I have to admit it’s refreshing, coming from someone sitting in St. Peter’s chair.



  1. Yes – I am no expert on Popes – but I like this chap so far.

    • I like him so far as well. But there’s a long winding road ahead, and I saw up close how the Vatican managed to reverse almost everything accomplished by Pope John XXIII and Vatican II in the 1960’s. So I’m hopeful with a little more realism this time around.
