Colorado Catholics are reacting to the Pope’s comments on homosexuals. He told reporters during his flight home from Brazil that he won’t judge gay priests for their sexual orientation.
Watching the crowds around Pope Francis in Brazil this week is reminiscent of Denver’s own World Youth Day in 1993, an event that forever changed Denver’s role on the global stage.
The president of Denver’s Regis University said he got choked up on Tuesday when he saw who had been chosen to be the new pope.
Cheers erupted from the room at the Archdiocese of Denver where Catholic priests, seminary students and employees were anxiously awaiting the announcement of the pope from the Vatican in Rome.
The health of a Pope is always a concern, but new-elected Pope Francis has an underlying health condition that you would never suspect by looking or listening to him. As CBS4 Medical Editor Dr. Dave Hnida reports, the world’s new Pope only has one lung.
