Cross Stitch Design Cardinals and We Have a New Pope

Cross Stitch Design Cardinals
Posted by Drew Zeitlin:

Hello everybody. Holy white smoke Batman we have a new Pope. That did not take long. On February 28, 2013 Pope Benedict XVI resigned the papacy and on March 13, 2013 Pope Francis I became the 266th leader of the Roman Catholic Church. The church announced that Argentinian Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio would become the new pontiff. Bergoglio, was the archbishop of Buenos Aires. He is 76. A quick side note before we get to the question on the table. Did you know that in latin pope means child's word for father.

The question on the table is how do you get to be the Pope? With a question like that we thought the best place to get that answer was from the digital vaults at abullrun. Sure enough they had the answer and the answer is the cross stitch design "Cardinals". Of course how silly of us not to know that answer. The election of the pope comes from a ballot of the Sacred College of Cardinals and almost always takes place in the Sistine Chapel, in a sequestered meeting called a "conclave" (so called because the cardinal electors are theoretically locked in, with key, until they elect a new pope). When a vote is successful, the ballots are burned, sending white smoke through the chimney at St. Peter's Square announcing to the world the election of a new pope.

With out any doubt the featured cross stitch design for today is named "Cardinals". This great design is more about our feathery friends and not so much about the Sacred College of Cardinals that elect the Pope, but they are both cardinals. Here is a pair of beautiful red cardinals, watching from their flowery perch. Were not sure what they are watching, maybe they are on the lookout for white smoke. The finished size of this feathery design is 10" x 13.5" (25,4 x 34,3cm).
