I hope Pope Francis can galvanize the youth in the way that only John Paul II was able to do. And I hope he will lead the Church to reach out and connect with Catholics all over the world and bring spiritual guidance to them in new and modern ways.  I think the Church should also open up and be more transparent–now that the Conclave is done, it’s time to open our doors and show people the good and kind Catholic Church that I love so dearly.
