Re: The Pope

It was a good idea to choose a Latin American pope as the catholic church is facing serious challenges from evangelical protestant churches in that part of the world. I know he is of Italian descent but i seriously don't think they would have chosen an amerindian, asian or african as pope. It would have been nice but it would be too radical for them.

I like that the new pope chose to name himself as Francis after Francis of Assisi. Francis of Assis is a famous and popular saint of the catholic church who did a lot of good.

I am a pagan and prefer worshipping the gods of my ancient ancestors but i must admit that the catholic church has helped and is helping millions upon millions of people every year. I hope that the new pope continues the good works and even expands it.
