    Coworker of mine: "Hard for new Pope's to live up to John Paul"

    Me: "Yeah they all can't be covering up a massive conspiracy to hide rapists and at the same time championing some kind of mistress of suffering as their ambassador."

    A human rights lawyer has filed a criminal complaint against an Argentine cardinal mentioned as a possible contender to become pope, accusing him of involvement in the 1976 kidnappings of two priests.

    Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s spokesman Saturday called the allegation “old slander.”

    There's no such thing as a young Cardinal. It takes decades to work your way up the Catholic church hierarchy.

    BERGOGLIO, Jorge Mario: Born December 17, 1936 in Buenos Aires, and ordained December 13, 1969 during his theological studies at the Theological Faculty of San Miguel. Bergoglio served as Jesuit Provincial (elected leader of the order) for Argentina (1973-79) and rector of the Philosophical and Theological Faculty of San Miguel (1980-86). After completing his doctoral dissertation in Germany, Bergoglio served as a confessor and spiritual director in Cordoba. In 1992, the Pope appointed him Assistant Bishop of Buenos Aires; then in 1997, he was appointed Coadjutor Archbishop (deputy archbishop with right of succession) of Buenos Aires; ultimately becoming Archbishop on February 28, 1998. Bergoglio is the vice-President of the Argentine Bishops Conference and serves on the Vatican's committee for the worldwide synod of bishops (a grouping of all bishops conferences). He speaks Spanish, Italian and German. Bergoglio exemplifies the virtues of the wise pastor that many electors value. Observers have praised his humility: he has been reluctant to accept honors or hold high office and commutes to work on a bus. What could count against him is his membership in the Jesuit order. Some senior prelates, especially conservatives, are suspicious of a liberal streak in the order, perhaps most pronounced in the U.S., but also present elsewhere. Bergoglio is said to prefer life in the local Church as opposed to a bureaucratic existence in Rome's ecclesiastical structures, but at the same time he has been willing to serve on the Vatican's various supervisory committees. This could indicate an ability to bridge the curia/local church divide that splits the College of Cardinal Electors, making him a good compromise candidate.

    E:Boy were they off!

    Wow, that didn't take long at all.

    Here are some of the details from one of the articles that has just popped up about him.
    ...At least two cases directly involved Bergoglio. One examined the torture of two of his Jesuit priests — Orlando Yorio and Francisco Jalics — who were kidnapped in 1976 from the slums where they advocated liberation theology. Yorio accused Bergoglio of effectively handing them over to the death squads by declining to tell the regime that he endorsed their work. Jalics refused to discuss it after moving into seclusion in a German monastery.

    Both men were freed after Bergoglio took extraordinary, behind-the-scenes action to save them — including persuading dictator Jorge Videla's family priest to call in sick so that he could say Mass in the junta leader's home, where he privately appealed for mercy. His intervention likely saved their lives, but Bergoglio never shared the details until Rubin interviewed him for the 2010 biography.

    I'm still sad we never got the CSI Miami episode that had the pope getting eaten by a bear in the woods.

    You know, it's fitting that we have a Pope Frank, because this appointment comes across as assigning a custodian to the Vatican.

    Walked by yesterday, saw the crowds, and I wondered, "What happens if the Pope comes out and sees his shadow?"

    This morning I figured it out...6 more weeks of Lent.

    He lives less grandly than he could and advocates for the poor which is good. Then again he's anti abortion, anti contracpetion, and anti homosexual marriage/equal rights, which are bad. He's also connected to a brutal dictatorship (and no not the current vatican).

    Pope Frank/Francis sounds so wrong. Papa Francisco or Papa Francesco are so much more right.

    I think he took the "house built on sand" parable a bit too far.

    What I think he's saying is that Spirituality and Confession to Christ are what makes the church more than just a "compassionate NGO" (Non Governmental Organisation). Presumably he feels such entities can disband and reform way too easily or something, whereas he believes the Church should be more than that and stronger than that.

    To be honest, I think he's throwing around the word "compassionate" a little too liberally, there.

    Like, he's projecting or over-elaborating?
