St. Louis Cathedral Mass Celebrates Pope Francis

A special mass was held Wednesday night at the St. Louis Cathedral to celebrate the election of Pope Francis.

Archbishop Gregory Aymond delivered remarks to hundreds of local and visiting Catholics who reflected on a day described as historic.

“I have goosebumps right now. I was thrilled that we have a new pope. We were excited; we were watching with our phones to see who the new pope will be,” Carla Ratcliff said.

“I think this is a wonderful choice. I have heard he is a very simple man and is very humble and very intelligent too,” Sister Marina Aranzabal said.

“We’re anxious to see that he can carry on the tradition of our Catholic faith,” Christine Gobert said.

The St. Louis Cathedral was full of local and visiting Catholics who all said they were excited about Pope Francis and his leadership.

    A message to the New Pope, the Vatican and the local clergy on HOT BUTTON ISSUES:

    A FEW QUESTIONS/COMMENTS on GAY MARRIAGE:

    If gay marriage is ok, why not make polygamy, incest, or pedophilia, OK?

    And all of aforementioned in the name of 'LOVE' will justify them all?

    Do the "ends" justify the "means" at any cost?

    Are gays really being honest with themselves and others in "coming out of the closet"? Why the need for gay "pride" in the first place decades ago?

    Perhaps someone can explain why they want to shame others for their hate or homophobia when they themselves needed to advertise and promote their own "pride" well before anyone knew about gay pride?

    ONE LAST POINT/QUESTION.
    Doesn't the medical community recommend that you, "Wash your hands after you go to the bathroom."?

    Yet, now there are some in the medical community that now say it's OK to "Sleep with the waste that gets flushed down in the toilet?" and that it's possible to live a perfectly normal life.

    IF I OPPOSE INCEST, DOES THAT MAKE ME A BIGOT?
    To those who say that anti-gay marriage supporters are "bigots", would anyone opposing polygamy, incest or pedophilia also be bigots?
