    Add the Catholic Church and the papacy to the list of topics about which you know absolutely nothing.

    One thing is certain. It will be interesting to see if a pope from South America will bear any resemblence to politicians in South America.

    Congatulations you crazy catholics.

    I kind of got all pumped up about it like I do for elections here. They only slightly stepped out of Europe to pick a guy who lives in Argentina... but is from Italy... lol

    Talk about a half step.

    He is a Jesuit, which surprised many observers.

    Which may very well explain why he chose "Francis" as his pope name...

    In 1534, Ignatius and six other young men, including St. Francis Xavier and Bl. Pierre Favre, gathered and professed vows of poverty, chastity, and later obedience, including a special vow of obedience to the Pope.

    Personal Opinion: The first non-European Pope ever... This is a sign of trouble.
    I didn't think they would elect a new Pope so soon... I mean, it hasn't even been a month. The conclave sure ended fast... too fast. It seems to me that the haste of which this decision was made is reflected in the candidate they picked. Not to mention that the man is 76. They could have picked a somewhat younger one...

    Anyway, for better or worse, this is it. The new Pope is from Argentina and he is taking on the name that suggest that his main concerns will be with poverty, hunger and helping the needy.
    I was hoping for someone a bit younger too. I don't think a Pope from a separate continent is a sign of trouble, it makes sense to move in that direction to reach out to and to better connect with larger populations of Catholics with different concerns and needs.

    Hopefully Pope Francis will be able to work towards a greater change when it comes to social justice for the poor and needy.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    Oh you give them too much credit, it is more like watching paint peel.

    Don't forget he is old and prejudiced like the last one. Come on, he has other qualities aside from being white, that was totally racist of you.
