Leaking grace.

Many thanks to Fr Stephen of "Southwark Vocations" for giving us a translation to Cardinal Bergoglio's handwritten note made before the Conclave. What a great vision and what an extraordinary way that it has come to light. Grace at work! These few lines do indeed represent an agenda for another Pope of the New Evangelisation.
I also found the reference to Cardinal Hummes' fraternal support of Cardinal Bergoglio, during the Conclave, to have a note of grace about it. Cardinal Hummes was a great Prefect of the Congregation of the Clergy in his time, and is said to have offered words of support and encouragement to Cardinal Bergoglio as the votes in his favour began to mount. I can imagine that you would need some very dear and heartfelt support in a Conclave if the voting began to point towards you!
