    It is most fitting I think to thank God for having a new Pope in the person of Pope Francis I. Reading a brief article above on the person of Pope Francis, I think God has truly given His people post-the Papacy of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, a Pope that is needed in our times. Gratias tibi Deus!

    God wants His people flocked together so in earlier time He gave us shepherd to guide us. It is the Will of the Almighty God to choose Pope Francis to lead us because He is Pro-Poor and Pro-Life. I want to express my best gratitude to greet His Holiness, Viva Pope Francis,may the Spirit be with you to guide us in our Catholic Faith.

    The new pope has chosen a new name and therefore, with no previous popes of the same name, he is not Pope Francis I (the first) until there is a Francis II (the second) Your web site has repeatedly called His Holiness Francis I. Could you check and have this changed for the sake of grammatical consistency and simply refer to him as Pope Francis?
