Thoughts on Pope Francis

Smile Ok -- it has been a few months now. What are your thoughts on Pope Francis?

Personally, I am thrilled and find him a breathe of renewed "hope" if that makes sense. While I appreciated Pope Benedict's orthodox knowledge, I absolutely LOVE Pope Francis' teaching heart. He connects with the people and doesn't seem to be trapped in what the 'norms' may have been. He is obviously here to serve.

If you have not had a chance to read some of his homilies let me know and I'll share some here! They are excellent!

I honestly have not been paying much attention to life/news outside my own little bubble, so I have no idea what he's been teaching!

Can you share a few?

I loved JPII, and found it hard to connect with Benedict, but that may have been just where I was at the time.
