1.) He is a Jesuit, he is the top Jesuit because he is also the Pope.

I think the man is genuine and working from within a corrupt organization.
If I put his well worn shoes on......how could I really be a difference in this organization with the obstacles he faces?
I think picking the patron he did and holding true to the end course with the vision he had might make a very real difference.
Just thinking of the influence he has on 3rd world countries is immense, any positive change is good change, a small shift in thousands can cause ripples in the pond most can't see that change our world in ways unimaginable.
Just think what difference a household would make free from judgement, then a community, a town.....children growing up without abuse, I count every one a victory!
If this man can make a real difference in one real life by his service he has served every descendant down from there for all time, that I can get behind and just bless and support.
Not everyone is a selfish hole.

Widely accepted is, then Cardinal Bergoglio’s (of Gog and MaGog?) proclamation that he did not want to become Pope.
Why someone truly dedicated to the teaching, of G_D’s Only Son, of love and forgiveness, and the eternal damnation of those who desire to live in sin, would hesitate to answer “Accepto.” Therefore there can only be one answer, that he has a shadow of a doubt in his belief. Or, he is truly repulsed at the thought of people associating him as someone that would lead The church of our Lord Jesus Christ. Does that sound like someone who would harbor iniquitous thoughts?
Many have debated that this Pope would be the last Pope or the Black Pope.
Now comes the news that Pope 112 has removed Cardinal Raymond Burke. Cardinal Burke stated that he would not give Communion to John Kerry for supporting abortion rights. There’s thrust number one.
Secondly, Cardinal Piacenza, distinguished himself as a staunch defender of the traditional image of the priest. Prior to Vatican II, priests had to spend hours rereading
The Bible, particularly, Psalms. Deleting this practice, invites impure ideations.
Why would the leader of The Church then, not want to reinforce traditional values?
The third blow comes to Cardinal Justin Rigali. He traveled to the White House along with Archbishop John J. Myers of Newark and Cardinal Seán Patrick O'Malley, OFM Cap, of Boston to attend a press conference by President George W. Bush to support a constitutional amendment initiative in the U.S. Senate banning gay unions or marriages.
Additionally, he stated during the annual Washington, D.C. pro-life rally in January 2007 that "there are reasons for rejoicing" in the pro-life cause: the growing participation by young people and a heightened awareness of the issue's intense and growing moral sensitivity among them, who will eventually have a contribution to make to societal issues. He also condemned the University of Notre Dame for having President Obama deliver the commencement speech at its graduation ceremony and receive an honorary degree . He stated that it was "most unfortunate" and the reasoning behind it "evades common sense."
He too has been axed!
Now I’m not here to convert those that do not believe in The Lord Jesus Christ. Nor am I going to be swayed by their nefarious commentary of deception and non belief. That’s been pontificated here before on a plethora of threads. If you don’t like what your reading, then please change the channel.
However, The Black Pope has made it clear. “Get with the program or your gone” latino.foxnews.com...
Add three more that have been crucified for the truth.

The order elects its own leader, known colloquially as the Black Pope because of the black vestments worn by the Jesuits, at a conclave in Rome, where members from around the world gather to make their choice. The current leader is Father Adolfo Nicolás, of Spain."
