  •  Pope Francis = my favorite pope. (1+ / 0-)

    I'm not Catholic, & I'm pretty opposed to much of Catholicism, especially having grown up in a Catholic neighborhood.  They did not leave a good impression.

    My family & I happened to be in Rome when the new pope was chosen.  We saw the black smoke coming from the Vatican chimney in the morning, & then that afternoon Francis was named.  So I felt like he was "my" pope, for what that's worth.  But I've been pleasantly surprised so far by his pronouncements.  You go, Francis!  It's not like I'm going to convert or anything, but as popes go, he's a breath of fresh air.
