Yesterday waiting for the new pope to come out, I was struck by how dramatic the whole scene was: the white smoke, the bells tolling, the crowds pouring into St. Peter's, the great, suspenseful buildup. Everyone was focused on the window just waiting to see who would walk out. It was all so dramatic. Because the Catholic Church is a sacramental church, it's a dramatic church, and a liturgical church. I hope that those who are more familiar than I am with media and drama would comment on that.
