1. If you have for any reason missed this moment, here it is again.
You can speak all you want, but when you do something like this while the whole world is watching it defies words of description and it is more beautiful and eloquent than any message you could speak or write.
2. And then there is this
Pope Francis telephoned Pope Benedict (Joseph Ratzinger) today to wish him well on his name day, St. Joseph.

A truly sweet and beautiful gesture and one I know was beautifully executed. I know these men pray for each other often.
3. This cannot be a solely Papal related post this week 🙂 so here is one of my favorite new shows I have been watching:
And I’m in good company, Julie at Happy Catholic seems to be a fan too. Very well written and Mindy Kaling is delightful in this role. She played the annoying Kelly Kapoor so well, it’s great to see she can play a totally relatable and likable character.
4. Speaking of good tv…why didn’t someone tie me down and force me to order Showtime during the first season of Homeland. Wow.
5. German Chocolate Cake. Homemade. I’m not even kidding you. My camera took awful pics of the one I was given so here’s one I found that was similar looking on the interwebs. She swears she used this recipe for the cake and this one for the icing and then mixed in a can of the Betty Crocker Coconut Pecan frosting with it.
