Not Yet, Eminence, Not Yet

Cardinal Maida got a wee bit carried away yesterday afternoon....
The cardinal himself mixed up his words at the end of the mass, turning to Flores and declaring: "Welcome to the College of Cardinals!"
OK, we know Szoka's been quite good at making his successor's dreams reality, but not that good.... At least, not in this pontificate.
Embarrassed at the flub, the cardinal slapped his forehead, but his next words were swallowed up in surprised laughter that quickly turned into sustained applause.

And one last beautiful shot of the day:
