Francis is a Good Name - Le Donne

"Francis", of course, brings to mind St. Francis of Assisi.  That Bergoglio will be "Francis I" may simply denote that St. Francis was not a pope (contra CBS news).

Both St. Francis and Pope Francis are known for strong views about celibacy.  Let's hope that our new Francis will also remember the impetus for the "Third Way".



  1. Just a thought....probably--since he's a Jesuit--he chose Francis for Francis Xavier?

  2. Most important questions first. Is this good for the Jews? Evidently.
