Wow .. so much for someone under the age of 70. He is neither an outsider nor an insider. He is a Jesuit. He is the son of a railroad worker. From Wikipedia ..

Bergoglio became known for personal humility, doctrinal conservatism and a commitment to social justice. A simple lifestyle has contributed to his reputation for humility. He lives in a small apartment, rather than in the palatial bishop's residence. He gave up his chauffeured limousine in favor of public transportation, and he reportedly cooks his own meals.

Pope Francis

Bergoglio is an accomplished theologian who distanced himself from liberation theology early in his career. He is thought to be close to Comunione e Liberazione, a conservative lay movement

Outstanding!

"First off, the Holy Spirit does not pick the successor to St. Peter. At the beginning of the conclave, the cardinals pray for the grace of the Holy Spirit, that a worthy Shepherd of the whole flock of Christ be elected by us."

Ahhh okies. I've learned something new. So Catholics don't claim that God picks the Pope. Interesting.

Is there a point in time that you can referrence where God interacts with the new Pope? Like, three days after he enters Popedom, he can expect a visit?

God Bless Cardinal Bergoglio!

Great choice. Argentines are Italians with a Spanish accent.

I pray he is at least 1/2 the leader John Paul II was. The world needs that sort of Pope today.

Let us pray for our Sovereign Pontiff, Francis I.

The Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not unto the will of his enemies.

A bit long in the tooth at 76, I had hoped they would go with somebody a little more youthful and vibrant, so we wouldn’t be going through this again in another couple years.

From his Wiki:

“As Cardinal, Bergoglio became known for personal humility, doctrinal conservatism and a commitment to social justice.”

Social justice, is another way of saying socialism, I think you’re screwed, imo.

English metrical paraphrase of the Te Deum:

“Holy God, We Praise Thy Name”
by Unknown Author, c. 1775
Translated by Clarence A. Walworth, 1820-1900

1. Holy God, we praise thy name;
Lord of all, we bow before Thee.
All on earth Thy scepter claim,
All in heaven above adore Thee.
Infinite Thy vast domain,
Everlasting is Thy reign.

2. Hark! the glad celestial hymn
Angel choirs above are raising;
Cherubim and seraphim,
In unceasing chorus praising,
Fill the heavens with sweet accord:
Holy, holy, holy, Lord!

3. Lo, the apostles’ holy train
Join Thy sacred name to hallow;
Prophets swell the glad refrain,
And the white-robed martyrs follow,
And from morn to set of sun
Through the Church the song goes on.

4. Holy Father, holy Son,
Holy Spirit, three we name Thee;
Though in essence only one,
Undivided God we claim Thee
And, adoring, bend the knee
While we own the mystery.

The Lutheran Hymnal
Hymn #250
Text: Luke 2:14, based on the Te Deum
Author: Unknown, c. 1775
Translated by: Clarence A. Walworth, 1853, alt.
Titled: “Grosser Gott, wir loben dich”
Tune: “Grosser Gott”
1st Published in: Allgemeines Gesangbuch
Town: Vienna, 1775

Well I don’t know, first I heard the first speaker say Francis but the announcers on Fox News said “we don’t know what name he will pick, it could be Benedict XVIII...” I have a friend over in Pitt. who is Catholic and first name Francis. He’ll be delighted if that is the name

I hope somebody sits Francis I down in front of a few Youtube clips from Full Metal jacket, otherwise he'll never figure out why all the Americans are telling him to lighten up.

My parish Priest traveled to Italy Monday in hopes of being there when the new Pope was announced. He was so excited about the trip he was like a little kid on Christmas! Can’t wait to hear his stories at Mass next Sunday!
