Roma Downey of 'The Bible': "He’s going to be a pope of hope"

More than 1.2 billion Catholics now have their new leader - Pope Francis, the first non-European pontiff.

Jorge Bergogolio, who served as archbishop of Buenos Aires, took the name Francis shortly after being elected by cardinals in what was apparently the fifth round of voting on the second day of the conclave.

CNN Vatican analyst: Pope Francis' name 'precedent shattering'

"It seems to me that my brother cardinals have chosen one who is from faraway. ... Here I am. I would like to thank you for your embrace," Francis said.

    Well St Patricks or Patty Murray and the Catholic 7 . I'll take it as a compliment. Abalanced approach where I believe they said as a bit of literature and understanding or just a show, its not like we actually influence the world we actually live in or anything is it? I thought it was a pretty cool catch off the pass so thank you.

    She has a decent budget by the way in case we would like to take it into political discourse.

    So on the football pitch, introduced by the French would that be Francis I the king of France who brought in Leonardo for his 700 crowns just to sit and talk, or like the Saint playing with and for Turkey and the birds?

    My humble guess, is that Francis I likes the muslims and turned his back on an attempted agreement with the English in favor of Suleiman/Solomon and opened the doors to a new ERA for the nation and church much like the new bells at Notre Dame. Correcting the out of pitch versions that had rung since the "Reign of Terror."

    Argentina doesnt like England very much and without Chavez it was a good choice to say WOW Mario amazing as a more moderate church fights against the quasi-machismo that was portrayed by Chavez surrounding himself and hiding behind women rather than walking beside them.
