Habemus Papam: The Reign of Pope Francis I
By N Mark Castro
The smoke heralded the new Bishop of Rome.
And carries with him the hope of over 1.2 Billion faithful, with some having lost their way over the sexual scandals that have rocked the Church, the corruption, and the largess.
With the reign of Pope Francis I, it is believed that the aggrieved would have a champion of reforms and justice would be served.
May his stewardship reflect the true nature of the teachings of Jesus the Christ … and may he be inclusive enough to foster peace, and guide the faithful to its true essence, and not the literal translation of God’s whispers.
