I am encouraged and pleased that we will have a Jesuit at the helm. Jesuits are called God's marines and for good reason.
Interesting that he was the first runner up, if I can use that expression, when Pope Benedict was elected.
I am a little concerned about the use of the term "social justice". Here in the US, that is code for taking some justice from some and giving it to others. I personal prefer the term "equal justice" which was a basic philosophy of our founding fathers.
I do look forward to the next few years under Pope Francis. He has stated, BTW, that he chose that name because of St Francis of Assisi, my patron saint.
