CTT #2

When the new Pope was announced, I was watching the live feed in a room of interested spectators, including the bishop of the Diocese of Cheyenne.  I caught the Cardinal’s voice saying, something about Bergoglio qui sibi nomen imposuit Franciscum (“who has given himself the name of Francis”).

Over the next minute or two, I found myself explaining to others what had been said.  It was neat at that moment to have the habit of understanding spoken Latin:  I heard the very words and grasped them.
