I just hope he formally excommunicates Pelosi, Kerry, Giuliani, and all the other fake "Catholic" politicians.
Need a pope with a mindset of about the 12th century. Too bad he didn't name himself Urban the Xth
Biden ought to be in the Top 10 of that list too.
The Holy Father's father is from Italy?
Aren’t Jesuits Catholic?? Sorry for the ignorance but ...???
....formally excommunicates Pelosi, Kerry, Giuliani, and all the other fake “Catholic” politicians...
After a good ol’ “medieval” inquisition!
Oh boy, anti Liberation Theology yet a commitment to Social Justice, that sounds like Colin Powell being a pro-choice Republican also for gun control but is ok with a capital gains cut. I am sorry for being cynical, but I need to hear more about his definition of "social justice"...
Yes. Jesuit is a subset. Most priests are trained and work in their own diocese. Jesuits are outside geography and are also more academic. Most of the Catholic universities - Georgetown, Boston, Depaul, Gonzaga, Marquette, Notre Dame are run by Jesuits.
If you want to generalize in America they have been progressive thus these Catholic universities are no have of Catholic religiosity. It sounds like that might not be true of the Pope.
Yes! Many Italians emigrated to both North and South America. One commentator suggested that, with the election of an Argentinian from Italian extraction, many Italian families tonight are asking themselves "Don't we have an uncle (aunt, cousin) in Argentina?" Italians tend to be a proud people, regardless of where their relatives have settled.
Does it matter? It is not uncommon for Italian emigrants to say they come from a large city when, in fact, they come from a neighboring area which most foreigners would not recognize.
Yes .. of course! No need to apologize for ignorance. The Society of Jesus (Latin: Societas Iesu, S.J., SJ or SI) is a Christian male religious order of the Roman Catholic Church. The members are called Jesuits and are also known colloquially as "God's Marines", these being references to founder Ignatius of Loyola's military background and members' willingness to accept orders anywhere in the world and live in extreme conditions. The society is engaged in evangelization and apostolic ministry in 112 nations on six continents. The society's founding principles are contained in the document Formula of the Institute, written by Ignatius of Loyola. Jesuits are known for their work in education (founding schools, colleges, universities and seminaries), intellectual research, and cultural pursuits, and for their missionary efforts. Jesuits also give retreats, minister in hospitals and parishes and promote social justice and ecumenical dialogue.
Okay, thanks. I don’t see why they wouldn’t have been at least nominated. They do good work in education. I guess it’s how well you work with the masses that count. They don’t do Mass, do they?
It’s probably something radical like ‘love your neighbor,’ rather than trust the government to love your neighbor.
Well then I find it sad that they weren’t even thought of in the nomination process (if there is one) - and thanks again for your information.
This is the way I see it as well. I don't believe economic conservatives are really happy about this choice, but most are trying to put a happy face on anyway. Argentina has an awful economic history - filled with currency defaults. They've had way too much "social justice" and they never, ever learn that government confiscation and collectivism doesn't work. This pope seems to be very conservative on the social issues and that is good news, but I don't feel very reassured about his economic views. Hopefully it turns out that he understands that free markets lift people out of poverty, not government dependency.
Jesuits have their own Pope, do ‘t they ? The Black Pope?
Define “Social Justice”.
Oh sure, they are priests — say mass, hear confessions — just follow a different way into the vocation.
