What's the Term?

This time last week, Only Son was explaining to me why he needed his school gala uniform on a Tuesday instead of Friday, "We will have a Mass today. The new pope will be... what's the term? Activated?"

As a parent in this gizmo-crazy world, I am both amused and appalled.

Pope Francis captured all our hearts with that first tentative wave of his hand and that shy smile, didn't he? Kinda like a preschooler waving goodbye to mom on the first day of school.
