I’m not Catholic but I watched the introduction of the new pope with interest. The news people discussed several issues surrounding the new pope: his stance on the teachings of the church (traditional marriage, abortion, etc.); his stance on social issues (advocacy for the poor); his humility by taking the bus with the rest of the cardinals after his selection.
Whether you’re Catholic or not, you can address these issues through your writing. What can you write about traditional marriage, abortion, treatment of the poor? How can you help Christians cultivate a spirit of humility? What other ideas does the new pope inspire?
