2. He’s the first pope from South America. The only remaining continents that have never had a pope come from their lands are Australia, Antarctica, and North America.

There was an Asian pope?

An evangelizer, most likely one of the reasons he was elected.

How does he square with the St Malachy prophecy one might wonder.

He’s the first pope since 897 with a completely new name never used before (since John Paul I was honoring two recent popes, John XXIII and Paul VI).

This is really unfair to the indigenous people of Antarctica. They are a gentle folk who have never gone to war.

I’m a Protestant but I hope(and it looks like from what I’ve learned so far he will) he continues to hold to the conservative side on the issues of life, marriage, the natural family and limiting the ordination of priests to men only. Whatever the Pope does on those issues influences those same issues even outside the Roman Catholic Church.

Well, I just read that The Guardian (UKnewspaper) doesn't like him.

That is a point for him in my book.
