Pope Francis I

Pope Francis the 1st

Pope Francis the 1st

This afternoon, I awoke from a nap to the news that the Church has a new Pope. Minutes later, Francis I was introduced to the world; and I heard his 1st speech ..live. Historic moment! Note: Pope Francis’ parents are Italian; however, he was born in Argentina.

I posted a link to the video of his first speech as Pope:

New Pope Francis I Greets The World
In the video, watch the new leader of the Catholic Church, Argentinian Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, step onto the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica and make his first remarks to the cheering masses in Vatican City.

I hope that ya’ll allow me the grace to express my humble opinion right here. Time might prove to change my feeling on this, but here’s what I think:

Both of Pope Francis’ parents were Italian. However, he was born in South America. So, in a way, they still chose an Italian as Pope. To me, it is somewhat of a smoke-screen because Pope Francis is still 100% European in blood. That’s OK with me; I’m just saying. — near New Orleans ·

  • Bryan C Gusman Bingo! Smoke-screen
  • Ferdie Werdie I am truly happy with the choice; I’m color-blind when it comes to the Pope. However, it insults my intelligence to hear them blasting all over the news that the Church just chose its 1st non-European Pope in the Modern Era. Pope Francis is 100% European in blood. His parents moved to South America before he was born, but both of them were Italian. HELLO-O-O-O!
