Not “Peter of Rome.” Rather Francis I of Argentina. So much for that load of “prophecies.”
He has a bit of what some characterize as a “social justice” streak, but outright rejected “liberation theology” some time ago. Apparently he really is a humble, devout, and no-nonsense kind of person. At least that’s what I’ve dug up in the past 10 minutes or so. Anyone else?
PS First Jesuit Pope.
Some crank will find a way to shoehorn that fake prophecy into this election. Somehow.
First American Pope -- South American!
Found this in a lengthy, article from the previous Papal selection - the link to the entire piece follows. Very enlightening.
“JORGE MARIO BERGOGLIO. Archbishop of Buenos Aires, 69 years of age, born in Argentina to parents who had emigrated from the Italian region of Piemonte. Since 2002 he has continually been the Latin American cardinal with the best probability of being elected, in spite of never having lifted a finger to present himself as a candidate: in the conclave, it is Ratzingers party that would launch his candidacy. As a bishop, instead of sermons on social justice he preached to the
Argentines in the thick of economic disaster that they should put into practice the ten commandments and the Gospel beatitudes.”
Dear Lord, guide our course.
