Cardinal Jorge Marion Bergoglio of Argentina elected Pope, the first Pope from outside Europe and the first to choose a new name.

Aged 76, he is the first Jesuit Pope.

I would have put money on the new pope coming from africa cuz so many are turning away from rome and embracing the muslim faith there ---the catholic church needs some good pr there and a pope from africa wud have been a boost for the church .
oh well they probably missed a golden opportunity.

I was once told by a catholic priest that they pick one of the elders cuz they are supposed to have experience of life but in reality they know nothing -- shear stupidity to elect someone half dead already -- it wud be better getting someone in their 50's so at least they can get a few years out of him

mmm, 76 and with only one functioning lung. Conservative in some ways, but hot on social injustice, willing to speak out, and has been travelling to work by bus Smile And how refreshing that the bloke's first words to the crowd were 'good evening'... and then he went on to crack a joke Smile

Not a bad thing to have to 'do it all again soon' Bigade......imagine, in this era, the scenario of being stuck with the same Pope for 40+ years because he'd been elected young Shocked

Unfortunately in the Catholic church (as in many organisations) you only get on by adopting the philosophies of that organisation. in this case almost half of the Cardinals were promoted by the previous Pope, so it might be safe to assume that his beliefs on many tenets of the Church are identical to his predecessor.

Pleased to see that he had reminded bishops that Jesus talked with lepers & prostitutes.

Oh Christ (no pun intended)...He's a Jesuit....

Quote:
The Monita Secreta (Secret Instructions of the Jesuits), published in 1612 and in 1614, in Kraków, is alternately alleged to have been written either by Claudio Acquaviva, the fifth general of the society, or written by Jerome Zahorowski. The purported Secret Instructions of the Jesuits are the methods to be adopted by the Jesuits for the acquisition of greater power and influence for the Society and for the Roman Catholic Church

I agree that a change in policies is way overdue, and that he might just be the guy to get it all started, but when he goes, they will elect a new guy in his stead, who could put it all back again. The Vatican is in the dark now, and always will be, because the church does not believe in change. They are the all powerful, and we will bend to their whim .........that is their way, and nothing changes. Just take a look at the power the church has over everything here in Cyprus. We have a government, yet many of the laws followed here are as a result of the church, and they make such a noise if those laws are threatened.

Sorry to disappoint you Byker but I am an atheist and never comment on something I know nothing about, unlike like some! Good luck to him, he looks remarkably spritely for his advanced years and he seems to be able to relate easily to the flock.

I admire those who have faith, no problems with that, but the preachers of those faiths are incredible in their beliefs to the detriment of millions plus non believers too. When they change their idiotic, outdated and dangerous beliefs such as abortion, contraception, sex abuse, women priests, homosexuality and goodness knows what else, then I would defend them along with the faithful, while we have mostly men of the cloth preaching such teachings then I want power stripped from these mullahs, popes and archibishops who often create many more problems than there needs to be.

No wish to upset followers, but damage is one often in the name of God or Mohammed or the virgin Mary.

As someone has already said the Pope is picked not by the people but by the cardinals who are responsible for spreading the doctrines worldwide they wouldn't pick someone who would change things.

Age is tantamount IMO but imagine having all that doctrine to uphold plus come from Argentina I wonder if he will keep out of the dispute between the UK and The Falklands, he should but will he?

Does seem a bit ironic that when a cardinal reaches 80 he loses his right to vote for a new Pope, yet if he is elected Pope at only 4 years younger he can go on forever. Must make sense to someone I suppose Rolling Eyes

Much like with the choosing of the Comrade Leader of the old Soviet Union, there is/was a method in their apparent madness.

By electing an aged man, if he is a good leader and he dies early then it was good while it lasted. Whereas, if he turns out to be a bad leader, then it'll not be long till he dies.

The head of the church in england isn't too young either, as far as I remember. She's heading for 90 and her heir won't be too young when he takes over, without any election, if he lives.

Here she is sitting proudly on her throne after her recent dose of the runs.

But at least we have got 60 years of service so far and counting. If we get the same from the pope he will be 135 years old.
That's your'e observation down the Pan. Wink

Good one Mouse. Some service alright from the freak show royals. When she gets up from that sitting, you might see a royal flush. That's about the only thing, she, or, any of them, can show for their waste of time.

This could start a Wink Chain Reaction. The replies could be Cisternmatic. The mind Boggles. Wink
