Habemus Papum

The New Pope
A 76 year old young Argentinian,  humble Jesuit, Cardinal Bergoglio,
who always took a bus to work and was always accessible to the people, became today,

Pope Francis,

a name taken from either Francis the Evangelist or St Francis of Assisi.
Cardinal Bergoglio is known to be a  humble, simple, conservative and believer in the original teachings of Jesus.
As a result of this, he had many run ins with the Argentine Government.

I think he seems to be a very good choice and is exactly the kind of man
who should represent the Catholic Church .

Of course I am disappointed our Canadian Ouelette wasn't chosen
as in the US I believe they also have a few very good choices.

I liked how Pope Francis asked people to pray for him
as well as praying and blessing the thousands who came out to see him.


For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing;
 it is the gift of God,  not a result of works, 
so that no one may boast. 
~ Paul to the Church at Ephesus (Ephesians 2:8-9)

It was nice to see and hear how the young Catholics
still have a strong connection and belief in Christ and God.

Wish Pope Francis the best.
He worked hard, served many and now is deserving to
have the honor and opportunity, to serve the world.

May God Bless Him.

Hopefully he'll make the right choices.

Adam - If he doesn't follow the Bible then he isn't following the religion.
There is no point to represent something if you don't believe in it.:)

I tend to believe this will fall in place with many turns in favor of all this is right and good. Pope Benedict opened the door, usually the most difficult. It will be nice to watch another resurgence of fresh air and encouragement for the younger generations to become closer with Christ on a more personal level.

Oh...(almost forgot) I fixed the link. Sorry 'bout that!
