More than ever I feel the need of having Thee close to me.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I will all the more gladly boast of my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

The new Pope's 'things to do' list
a public Mass in the Extraordinary Form
an encyclical on the restoration of orthodoxy
Bishop Fellay round for drinkies
reception for Una Voce
the Latin Mass within seminaries
a command to the Bishops to ensure at least one Sunday Mass is an EF one
the spread of plainchant
all musical ‘street’ instruments from the liturgy
all hymn books post 1970
an orthodox syllabus for religious education in Catholic schools
Actually, this is just my perverted sense of humour. It is far too early to make a judgement on this Pontificate. See HERE for some considerable crumbs of comfort. H/T to Stella Maris for the link
