Sounds like a good guy. I hope he turns out to be a great pope.

The MSM is disappointed he isn’t Pope Obamus.
Too sad, too bad!

I am thinking that he took the name of Francis to honor not just St. Francis of Assissi, but also Francis Suarez the great Jesuit who is the father of the philosophy of law.

Anyone fortunate enough to watch the full proceedings live from white smoke ‘til Francis spoke, will not likely forget it for some time. We were crying, dancing, cheering, and singing, and we weren’t even in Rome. :) It’s great to be Catholic. Pope Francis, we love you!

I am sure that the media will lament the fact that the Roman Catholic Church chose a Roman Catholic Bishop with Roman Catholic views and tenants to be the Roman Catholic Pope.
They would have prefered someone from outside the Church, who did not believe in the RC Church’s views had been the one selected to be the Bishop of Rome and senior to all others.
