Where Were You.....?

when you heard that Cardinal Ratzinger had been elected Pope?

I was in the same Suburban packed with a family of nine, pulling into the TAC campus for the first time.

Habemus Papam! I'll never forget it!

(I remember the radio broadcaster was trying to make sense of the Latin proclamation:

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum;
habemus Papam:

Eminentissimum ac Reverendissimum Dominum,
Dominum Josephum
Sanctae Romanae Ecclesiae Cardinalem Ratzinger
qui sibi nomen imposuit Benedictum XVI

and saying "he's going to call himself Dominic? would that be Pope Dominic I??")
