The complete Inaugural Mass of Pope Francis (PBS NewsHour)
The New Humble Pope.
When Pope Benedict XVI's successor, Jorge Bergoglio, was announced as the new Pope, the one word that many used to describe him was "humble." The Italian pope, born in Argentina, is of the Jesuit order which is known for their vows of poverty and work among the poor. Pictures and articles have surfaced revealing that as an archbishop, Bergoglio took the public bus and cooked his own meals. When it was announced that he would be known as Pope Francis, the connection was quickly made to St. Francis of Assisi, who renounced his wealth to live a life of poverty and service to others. Many have rejoiced that this is just the kind of humble leader that will further ecumenical relationships and win greater favor for Roman Catholicism.

Is Pope Francis a "brother in Christ"? Luis Palau answers @EdStetzer on #TheExchange
Mike Gendron says:
Luis Palau must not know that when anyone preaches a gospel contrary to the one the apostles preached, they are to be accursed (Gal. 1:6-9). The distortion of the pope's gospel includes baptismal regeneration, justification by baptism, justification by faith plus works, indulgences for the remission of sin, purgatory for the purification of sin, law keeping for salvation and participation in the never ending-representation of a Eucharistic Christ on an altar to satisfy divine justice.
