So our new Pope is almost a complete unknown even though (it is rumoured) that he was runner up to Pope Benedict XVI.
His choice of name seems to tell us little. We have no Pope Francis to compare him with. We are told that he is, theologically, traditional but what does this tell us about his future dealings with those of us who love the Extraordinary Form of the Mass.
We can only wait & see & pray that our new Pope carries on the reforms of Pope Benedict & makes the EF Mass even more available to the Church.
