    Hmm, a Pope who’s actually read “the book”! Let’s hope he keeps it up.

    Even more, he actually seems to genuinely want to live (and have Catholics live) by the words and precepts of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ lived, taught, died, and was resurrected by the precepts of compassion, mercy, and love, which this pope is happy to follow. No mere human being can do better!!

    Shouldn’t his parking tag be #1, unless#173 is closesr to the door?

    Jesuits have always been less authoritarian than other groups within the Catholic church. I also like that he took the name of St. Francis, by far one of the gentler, more humanitarian and environmental of the saints.

    Picto: I did #173 because he wouldn’t be hogging the #1 spot! Signe

    Please forgive my crude attempt at levity and let me say I couldn’t agree with you more. It’s inspirational to see someone “walk the talk”.

    is this pope francis’s penance during the argentina’s military junta years? that he could have done more to stop the junta. wish the vatican would tell their clergy and those damn orders(franciscans, jesuits, etc…) to do more for the poor.
    and, he is much better than benedict(hitler youth), and jp2(worked at a factory that produced chemicals to gas jews and did nothing about his pedophile clergy). or, pius 12 who did nothing when the nazis were killing everyone,

    I’m all in favor of a church leader who practices what he preaches, but this doesn’t add up :-( http://world.time.com/2013/09/25/pope-francis-excommunicates-priest-who-supports-womens-ordination-and-gays/

    vwdualnomand,
    I’m not a Christian, but I do work with the Franciscans quite frequently, and they do more for the poor than any group I have come across. And, unlike many other religious orders, they do not preach to or try to convert those they help – they help whoever needs it, whenever they need it, no questions asked. I’m not sure why you seem to believe they could do more, they are only humans.

    You can’t drop your right wing talking points for a moment, not even for the pope.

    Signe, I figured that it would be the number of pope that Francis is in “cardinal” order. ;-)

    But like everyone else, has not read ACA/OBAMACARE, and therefore has no clue what it is about; again like everyone else.

    Not the topic today. Get a clue.

    And the Neo-Puritans here in America are NOT happy! Doesn’t he know that “Christianity” has nothing to do with Christ- that it’s supposed to be a wall of exclusion, from which the “saved” can cast their stones down upon all those they find unworthy?
    I mean, who does this guy think he is… the Pope?!
