    Wonderful!
    Blessings of Love, Hope and Faith for Pope Francis I, and for the world.
    He is a humble servant of Righteousness.

    He seems like a man of the People. I hope that he can clean up the mess in the Vatican. Good luck Pope Frannie!

    Like I said I don't have a dog in this hunt. But it seems like they could use a good man. I hope he works out.

    @CullenBaker I have a low opinion of the entire institution. I could care less who the head of the family is.

    @AceLuby that's good. You sounded like it was personal. I am not catholic either but they set great store in the Pope. I don't judge.

    I am highly disappointed in the sad, hateful and juvenile comments by many posters.
    Some border on a support for evil in the face of Righteousness.
    Shame on you. Shame.
    I am sorry to those of you who are Faithless. That is truly a lonely and despairing state.
    Faith. Charity. Hope. Love.
    These are Eternal.
    I am sorry for those who feel differently.

    True the number of people that reject the existence of God is disturbing. Many, myself included, see the Catholic church as a cult. No man is holy or deserving of reverence and should never be referred to in that way, yet we hear terms such as holy Mary mother of God and holy Father being applied to people. How can we discount that?

    Bergoglio participated in Argentina's dirty war and is himself a war criminal. He handed over pro-democracy people to be murdered by the fascist regime, just as Pius XII collaborated with the Nazis and turned over jews. He also hid wanted war criminals after the end of the dirty war.

    @GuyFawkes - I see your reply was deleted, no doubt for good reason.

    You blathered, "focus on the message- not the messenger". When the messenger is a war criminal and a fascist, that IS the message being sent by the cardinals: fascism, hate, and cover up of pedophilia are okay with them.

    I'm not a Catholic. The New Testament says there is one way to God, through Jesus Christ. Not giving confessionals and praying to Jesus' mother. She may have been extraordinary, but she was still just a women who God chose to bear His Son. Jesus is the way to God. Not all the pomp and circumstance of the Catholic church. But I do wish him good luck as leader of his faith and his endeavors as Pope to the Catholic Church.

    It wasn't Napoleon, but Stalin, who asked that question. In any case, believer or not, Catholic or not, the Pope carries an enormous amount of clout throughout the world, so it does matter who they select.

    @Denizen_Kate yes it was Stalin. And I have no beef with the pope. I hope he is a good guy. We need all the help we can get.

    Matthew 23:9-15 HCSB

    Do not call anyone on earth your father, because you have one Father, who is in heaven. And do not be called masters either, because you have one Master, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You lock up the kingdom of heaven from people. For you don’t go in, and you don’t allow those entering to go in.“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You devour widows’ houses and make long prayers just for show. This is why you will receive a harsher punishment.“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! You travel over land and sea to make one proselyte, and when he becomes one, you make him twice as fit for hell as you are!

    This doesn't surprise me at all. By 2050 the USA will be majority Latino. You have to start now getting the Latino ducks lined up to control the country.

    Excellent point. One of the main functions of organized religion is to band it's members together. Too bad our government can't do that. It seems intent on pitting us against each other with special interest.

    I am no longer a practicing Catholic, but I was certainly pleased to see someone from the "New World" elected tot he position. Perhaps now, real change and growth will be seen within the Church and the sins of the past will be dealt with immediately and properly and not swept under the rug. Contrary to their teachings, Priest (and Nuns) are human and therefor fallible. Which leads to the need to do away with the vows of celibacy the Church seems to think necessary for their Priests and Nuns.

    Great Man of Honor, if you ask me. He is way much better than Washington Liberals for the Poor People through his humble actions. A true leader for people of all races, creeds, and/or religious backgrounds. Thank God for The New Holy Father! Pax!
