Habemus Papa!

r-POPE-FRANCIS-hugeHe is from Argentina, the first Latin-American Pope and from the Americas. He is 76 years old, son of Italian immigrants, only has one lung, lost it at early age, ultra conservative, against abortion, against same-sex marriage…. but known for his advocacy on behalf of the poor, primarily in his home country.

What is in a name? Francis of Assissi cared for simplicity, cared for the poor… He takes the bus, make his own meal. He is a Jesuit. What a change!
