Habemus Papam.

It is a choice that is well suited for the times. In a time when economic uncertainty continues to plague the world, the cardinals have selected as Pope a cardinal who is well known for being a champion of the poor and living humbly.

For the first time, a Pope has been selected who is a member of the Jesuit order. His name Francis is apparently named after Saint Francis Xavier, one of the founders of the Jesuit order and the first Jesuit missionary. He is the first non-European pope for more the 1200 years and the first pope from Latin America.

He's known for living simply. As Archbishop he lived in an apartment in Buenos Aires rather than the diocese's mansion (which he sold), cooked for himself and took the bus to work.

I think I will like this Pope. Many Christians have lost touch with the humble origins of their faith. He will steer Christians back to traditional Christian values and away from the greed that has tainted the faith.

The last paragraph of this post is an understatement. "Lost touch".....more like abandoned by the droves. And is it any wonder. Most religious speakers talk "double dutch" to their listeners.....and in effect insult their intelligence.
For example, Jesus was an ordinary man.....perhaps suffering from a mental disorder just like his disciples. Who in this day and age really believes that he rose from the dead? Oh I forgot....you must have faith. Faith in what.....myth?
