Cardinal Tauran recounts excitement of announcing new Pontiff
CWN - April 09, 2013
Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, who introduced Pope Francis to the world after his election on March 12, told an audience in Chicago that the experience was "like a plane takeoff, the beginning of an adventure."
Cardinal Tauran was the senior cardinal-deacon participating in the March conclave, and therefore was assigned the role of introducing the new Pontiff. He described the experience in an interview with the Chicago Tribune.
