Photos of the Week – Habemus Papam!


The Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters celebrated Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio being elected Pope Francis I on March 13! Many Sisters were gathered in community rooms around the Motherhouse awaiting this historic announcement. “Habemus Papam,” said Prioress Mary Ellen Gevelinger, OP. “The vision of Pope Francis, bowing his head to receive the blessing of everyone gathered in St. Peter’s Square and around the world, was truly amazing. The Mound bells sang out our own welcome of this new Pope across the fields. May his gentle and humble spirit be filled with The Spirit, as he assumes his new role.”
