Ha! Just yesterday I blogged about Franciscans and tonight we have a new Pope who has chosen the name Francis!
Francis of Assisi, after all these centuries, would be pleased.
Poetic justice, I'd say.
And Pope Francesco is a Jesuit!!
Just look at the coat of arms of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
His motto means "Pitiable but chosen" or some translate "By having mercy, choosing."
He seems to be a friendly and humble man.
It think we're going to like him!
Mazal tov, Holy Father! May God guide you in your new life.
