He is NOT Francis I. He is Pope Francis. He will not be called “Francis I” until there is a “Francis II”.
I’m watching the Franco Zeffirelli film Brother Sun Sister Moon, on the life of St. Francis. Streaming from Amazon onto my Kindle Fire. Free download for Prime members.

Everybody seems to be assuming that the Pope, a Jesuit, took his name from St. Francis of Assisi. Why is that? Is it not at least as likely, if not much more so, that he was thinking of St. Francis Xavier?

(Political correctness is cultural Marxism. I'm not a Marxist.)
It is NOT Francis the FIRST because only after there is a Francis the SECOND can there be a Francis the FIRST...that’s what one of the Vatican people said yesterday anyway.
Here's an interesting tidbit I've just learned. Remember the bird sitting on the chimney of the Sistine Chapel during the conclave? Evidently, there have been a lot of comments about it, especially in the Argentine media. Well, it turns out the bird was of the silver seagull species, Latin name... Larus argentatus! ('argentum' = 'silver' in Latin.)

He looks like Enrico Fermi.
I will never forget this image prior to the white smoke. I had come home for lunch and turned on the news to see what was happening and this was on. I said, "This is our next Pope". I so hope that Pope Francis remains and continues to live a life of humility and charity in the example of his namesake and in the name of Jesus. And am so hopefilled for our church.

I call Pope Francis, a “spiritual hybred”, a Jesuit who has a Francisian spirituality.
