I love the choice of name. Not only because Francis is one of the few post-Biblical Catholic saints non-Catholics know about and like but also because it shows a willingness to ignore precedent.
Otherwise he's a Prince of the Church who has chosen to live like a poor man (good) and a man of power who seems to have accommodated himself to a right-wing terror regime (not so good).
I watched the news come in on Channel 4. Jon Snow and his team were caught on the hop. They hadn't prepared for this eventuality. Someone had left a mic on and you could hear excited back room chatter. "Who?" "Mutter, mutter" "Wait. I've got it!"
