LOL. They elected a Jesuit.Yeah I got a laugh out of that as well. Maybe that's what the Curia needs.
When I pointed this out, my wife told me to shut up because I wasn't RC anymore and was not allowed to go on one of my patented rants. I've long been no fan of the Jesuits (even as an RC) and the mere mention of them tends to get me going.
I've got to admit that as gracious as people have been here about our (Catholic) new Pope, it does get a little irksome sometimes to read those comments from some people who, as Orthodox, think they know what the Catholic Church needs to do, how it should reform itself, etc. more so and better than the Catholic Church and its members and hierarchs do. It's a little bit like me, officious jerk that I can be at times, telling my sister, who doesn't live with me and whom I love dearly, how to run her house and her life. She has every right to tell me, "You know, thanks for your concern, but it's really none of your business
." (Usually though, she's a little more patient with me, and just chooses to ignore me
