As I go off to Rome my mind is filled with many different emotions. Excitement of course because I will be there at the moment that the Holy Father steps down. But if I'm honest, a little bit if worry to.
You see it has now been eight years or so that on a parish level you could always say that you were simply following the vision of the Holy Father. This could all be very different very soon. We know (well, trust) that the next man will be sound and holy. But there was a lot to be said for being able to follow his liturgical style.
Still, there's nothing we can do about it. Just pray. That's all.
