"Well, I think different journalists write different things. I think journalists are thinking what they think cardinals would want. They would write different things which was interesting to watch.”

"When he asked for that silence and just bowed down, I was up there on the other side, looking at all these hundreds of thousands of people and then-silence and just prayer.”

As Pope Francis begins his pontificate, Collins says he's looking forward to seeing the new Pope in action, as he leads the Catholic Church and gives an extra push to the New Evangelization.
