Brothers and sisters good evening.
You all know that the duty of the Conclave was to give a bishop to Rome. It seems that my brother Cardinals have gone almost to the ends of the earth to get him… but here we are. I thank you for the welcome that has come from the diocesan community of Rome.
First of all I would like to say a prayer pray for our Bishop Emeritus Benedict XVI. Let us all pray together for him, that the Lord will bless him and that our Lady will protect him.
Our Father…
Hail Mary…
Glory to the Father…
And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and the people, this journey of the Church of Rome which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood. My hope is that this journey of the Church that we begin today, together with the help of my Cardinal Vicar, may be fruitful for the evangelization of this beautiful city.
And now I would like to give the blessing. But first I want to ask you a favour. Before the Bishop blesses the people I ask that you would pray to the Lord to bless me – the prayer of the people for their Bishop. Let us say this prayer – your prayer for me – in silence.
[The Protodeacon announced that all those who received the blessing, either in person or by radio, television or by the new means of communication receive the plenary indulgence in the form established by the Church. He prayed that Almighty God protect and guard the Pope so that he may lead the Church for many years to come, and that he would grant peace to the Church throughout the world.]
[Immediately afterwards Pope Francis gave his first blessing Urbi et Orbi – To the City and to the World.]

I will now give my blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will.
Brothers and sisters, I am leaving you. Thank you for your welcome. Pray for me and I will be with you again soon... We will see one another soon.
Tomorrow I want to go to pray to the Madonna, that she may protect Rome.
Good night and sleep well!

I half expected him to ask the assembled to raise their hands towards him to bless him...

'Brotherhood' raises a red flag.  O well.  At least we've been warned.  Thank God for warnings.

Are we really so cynical and jaded to think that talking about "brotherhood" is a "red flag?"

I was speaking for myself.  Universal brotherhood is one of the masonic ideals.  Brotherhood is a word they use a lot.  I know the gospels constantly use the word brethren too. 

The warnings I'm grateful for are those of Our Lady of Fatima.  I believe she said there would be an apostacy that would start at the top of the Church unless ... But I'm not even slightly worried.  A great priest once said the second most offensive thing to God besides sin, is our worrying.

The bible does say that God is "God and Father of all," and that he is "in all". So while there is unique and supernatural brotherhood of Christians, there is sense in which all humans share in a natural bortherhood.
