Papal Trivia

No number.
VATICAN CITY — The Vatican says the new pope's official name is Pope Francis, without a Roman numeral.

Spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi sought to clear up any possible confusion, noting that Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, who announced the name to the world, said simply "Francis." It is listed that way in the first Vatican bulletin on the new pope.

"It will become Francis I after we have a Francis II," Lombardi quipped.
From the AP. All rights reversed.

P.S. Francis is the patron Saint of animals. And also...my confirmation name.

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
