Peggy Noonan: A Story About Selecting the Pope

OpinionJournal: "The Cardinal -A story about selecting the new pope.

...In the polls on churchgoing and belief it's always Catholics on the street in Europe and America who say they want change and reform. They'd been saying it for years! And yet it was Catholics on the street from Europe and America--real nobodies, not to be impolite but just regular Catholics--who engulfed Rome to weep and yell Santo, Santo! ...

A wonderful, thoughtful column thats says so much so well.
