    I wish the new Pope the best .I think it will be a thankless job now days with all the liberal push for so called gay marriage and all the attacks on our Catholic Faith abortion married preists and women in the preisthood and all that .I hope he stands fast on the churches position on all this otherwise the Catholic Church will cease to matter. God Bless him and good luck to him
