A Pope Named “Francis”? Well, it’s About Time

I believe the word used by Anne Carroll, Dr. Warren Carroll's wife, was propaganda. It was used by protestants, those revistionists of history, in order to demonize the Catholic Church. I have listened with great interest to her defense of Truth regarding the Crusades, the Protestant Revolt (not reformation), the defamation of Mary by naming her "Bloody" Mary (while Daddy, King Henry and then Elizabeth martyred exponentially more Catholics individually). So, the drivel that jkash1776 mentions continues because of revisionists. But, those who seek Truth, with find it (i.e. GK Chesterton, Peter Kreeft, Dr. Scott Hahn, ...)

One thing amazed me about the new pope being appointed last week. For the first time in Church history---after about 800 years---a pope chose the name Francis, in honor of St. Francis of Assisi. I hadn’t realized this was the first time ever. Well, it’s about time.

Francis of Assisi, for whom one of our great cities is named (San Francisco) was a delightful Christian example for Catholics, Protestants, and Orthodox Christians alike. If more of us who profess to follow Christ were more like him, we would have a much stronger witness before the watching world.

Francis Bernardone...
