Pope Francis I
March 13, 2013 § Leave a comment
What’s a surprise! Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio became the 266th pope in the history of Catholicism. The media got it all wrong when they focused too much on the American cardinals and the supposed Italian front-runner. The selection of the pope is performed by the Holy Spirit (as believed by Catholics) and not by the activist media and liberal Catholics; this was apparent in the election result. Pope Francis may or may not turn out to be whom people were hoping for, but his elevation to the papacy offers hope and a new beginning for the Church and its followers.
