I know there are loads of jokes, and I've taken part too.

I felt comforted as I listened to him, reminded me of how I felt in church when I lost my mum and went as I felt lost. Don't how or why but I really like Pope Francis I, he comes across really well, bless him. Lots of things I don't agree with in the catholic church, but the personal feelings I had as he spoke made me think of mum and that was nice.

I bet they're going crazy in Argentina and the rest of South America. Can't believe he's their first representative

Whilst I do not suffer fools gladly, I will always gladly make fools suffer

A man is getting along on the road of wisdom when he realises that his opinion is just an opinion

Yes amh. People underestimate the power of the pope in this country. In catholic developing countries he is basically the number one influence and people hang on.his every word. I amongst filipinos and they basically did what ever he said and looked to him for direction in life. He will have immense influence over south America.

Judging by the red Vees in his coat of arms that possibility can not be ruled out
