Did you know that Pope Francis was essentially "exiled" by the Jesuits to the outskirts of Buenos Aires before he was an Archbishop after he tried to reform the Jesuits (and this was done with agreement of the "government" of Buenos Aires apparently). He ended up teaching Math to students living in poverty in the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Pope John Paul II "rescued" him and appointed him Archbishop of Buenos Aires. Thanks be to God for our Saint Pope John Paul II!

What a courageous man to live his principles to the point of effectively "trashing" his career with the Jesuits (at least for a period of time) and the humility to accept his "exile" to teaching students in a very poor area of Buenos Aires on the outskirts. He did not know that he would be "rescued" by Pope John Paul II. He truly lived out his Faith in God here! Thanks be to God for our new Pope Francis!

I hope he has a long reign (is that the right word?) as our Holy Father. From what we've seen so far, he will garner broad respect and admiration well outside of the Catholic Church alone. theheart

The more I get to know the more I like and am impressed by your commitment to God, Church, Pope and people. To keep you humble I know you have faults. But your doing a good job punching above your weight as they say in boxing. Michael is a very good presenter of truth. od bless and protect Pope Francis, and as I say to my friends, "If your going to be Negative at least be Positive about it!" Now that's Con-Fusion! thumbsup

I will start with something small, but that I really think is positive.

And, that is that when Pope Francis was Archbishop of Buenos Aires, he got rid of the limousine and driver that was provided for him and took the bus every day to/from work so that anyone in his diocese who wanted to talk to him could just get on the bus and have a few minutes to talk to him while they were riding the bus together. So, in essence, every single person of his diocese (and even outside of his diocese) had personal access to their Archbishop!

How wonderful is this accessibility to your spiritual leader!

Patricia,
thank you for that heartwarming story of our awesome new poope Francis. I heard that when his luggage was being shipped to The Vatican 'he' went to the airport himself with his driver (I think they are afraid to let him out of their sight :):) andwent to the luggage pick up and said to the person at the front desk "I am here to pick up my luggage, Jorge Belglglio.."" and they said your excellency there is no charge" . He was dumbfounded, but grateful, as they took his luggage for him to the car. I thought that was so cute.

Hi there,
That is definitely not our new pope. But I am anxious to know who it is. Another cardinal, do doubt! A great pic' on its own!

We can include himin our daily & nightly prayers and pray for him at every mass, after we receive Our Savior into our bodies. We can also spread the word about His Holiness to our non Catholic brothers and sisters.
