Is this the right thread to talk about the Inauguration Mass next Tuesday?

I guess it will be a royal event. Do we have any confirmation of whom we will see there?

I just now that the Princes of Asturias and the Prime Minister will represent Spain, acording to casareal.es

HH refused to take a limo to his hotel today but went by an ordinary car that happened to be availeble and drove into the city of Rome to the place he stayed before the Conclave started,packed his belongings,payed cash and thanked staff for the hospitality,and left..

Francis,as in Francis Xaverius,co-founder of the Order of the Jesuits and Francis of Assisi...he has the name of both,and will live his Pontificate in their Spirit,he will live what both Saints stand for...He is that dedicated all for others never for himself sort of human.Modesty,human,reaching out,Pope of all,no need to specify any group,he's there for all,no exceptions.That has always been his Credo regardless the times and circumstances,there for all in need,no exceptions.He is everybodies Pope.

In the afternoon HH met the 114 Cardinals in the Sistine Chapel where he celebrated Mass.

He deserves our respect and patience..from all of us.

In Honorem Sanctem

I am very happy that a new pope has been chosen so quickly and also one who is of my liking-I have anticipated a Latin American pope (he is the first South American in this position).South America has a vibrant Catholic community and the church in S-A does a lot of great work for the poor people-namely education,building hospitals & orphanages or backing human rights issues and even sometimes speaking out against corruption,cruel politicians and greedy businesses.
Most countries in Latin America have to fight often human-made diseases-namely illiteracy,poverty and many illnesses (malaria!) and drug wars,so I hope that a Latin American pope will create a better political climate and give hope to everyone!
Also he is a men from the Jesuits-very dutiful,hard-working and highly intelligent people who built a lot of universities and have a close relation to the true sayings of Jesus (of course,there have been times in history when they abused their power,but today that is not the case anymore).
Franz (Francis) from Assisi had a very modest,practical approach and helped the poor and also had a special gift to communicate with animals.Therefore he is referred to as the "Francis of the Poor" or in German-speaking countries we associate him as the holy man who could talk with animals :-)

I wish him good luck in his new position (god knows,he needs it!) and hope for a good influence on the Roman Catholic church may he bring more compassion,honesty & understanding into this world!

I doubt that any members of the Scandinavian royal families will attend, as they are all Lutheran.

I know, but still many royal families (reigning and not) are Catholics. It will be a royal gathering in any case.

Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik attended Pope John Paul II's funeral, in 2005. Queen Sonja, King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia were also presented.

The Pope is a Head of State, so, they'll be attending not only a Catholic ceriminoy, but the Inauguration of a foreing Head of State. Religion plays no role on those things.

Who will represent the British Royal Family? The Kents, maybe?

The Prince of Wales will probably represent the BRF, he did at the funeral of Pope JohnPaul II as it meant postponing his own wedding. He didn't attend Benedict's inaugural mass (i'm guessing Charles and Camill were on honeymoon) but the Duke of Edinburgh did.

Interesting that he was apparently born in India and that his father was an Indian railroad worker. Not sure how he ended up in Argentina.
Given his age I would not expect a long papacy, but I do like his emphasis on social justice.
Why do you wish a Pope "luck"?
Thanks for that because his ascetic ways do remind me a bit of Anna Hazare and Gandhi.In a world crazed with materialism and technology we have a man of the spirit.

They are certainly not giving heads of state much time in order to reorganize their schedules if they want to attend his inauguaration. Is it usually done 1 week after election?

I wished him luck because he has huge problems that have to be dealt with.....a curia that is known for its jealousies and infighting, a bank that is known for mismanagement and money laundering, sex scandals amongst the clergy and how the Vatican has mismanaged its handling of those scandals, and of course increasing secularism in Europe and North American and in South American the rapid growth of Pentacostalism. Everywhere he turns he faces problems so yes I would say he needs a great deal of luck to deal with it all.

FYI, the Wiki info that he was of Indian heritage was wrong. His parents were of Italian origin.

I'm sure we'll have plenty of other mantillas to keep us glued to our seats

I just want to understand what you mean or others if they have the same view.
Yes, his views are very much in line with the Church's teaching - and I also very much oppose a lot of the old-fashioned views of the Church, so yes, they're the wrong views in my opinion.

What part of my post was disrespectful to the Pope? I merely stated that I think that he (and the Catholic Church in general - I'm raised a Catholic myself) has the wrong opinions and views on a lot of things. I don't think he's a bad person, I don't know him personally so wherefrom should I know, I'm sure he's a nice person (as I also mentioned in my post), personally I just think he (and the rest of the Church, has the wrong views on a lot of things

I think that maybe Lord and Lady Nicholas Windsor will attend, since they married in the Vatican and their sons were both christened there. I'd also like to see the Duchess of Kent attend, and maybe Princess Michael. Does anyone know if any British Royals attended the inauguration of Pope Benedict?
