“Rebuild my Church.”

The early comments I read about Pope Francis’ choice of name spoke to his compassion for the poor. But this command from Christ might be another reason.


Or, it could just be that he’s a Jesuit, and he’s thinking of Francis Xavier.


  1. Well, there it is. He rebuilt it. A bit smaller maybe.

    Happy now, God?

  2. Happy, sure. But never satisfied.

  3. Yes Sir.

    As he rose to pontifical rank)
    Fixed his new nomenclature:
    ‘By grace and by nature,
    Fratelli, I have to be Frank.’
