My vote was the intro to "Rock You Like A Hurricane", and they could have flashpots going off in synch with the drums.

A lot of the talking heads on the news seem to be assuming that the name Francis is in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, who is someone even a non-religious person (and non-Catholic) like me has heard of. But wouldn't it be more likely that it refers to St. Francis Xavier, who co-founded the Jesuits, of which the same talking heads say the new pope is a member?

(I also assume that's where Xavier University gets its name.)

At first I said "WHO?"

Then I said "aww he's cute!" He seems like a humble and sincere man. Though to me as a Catholic I find the public interest and fanfare kind of strange...I guess what is just part of your life and background suddenly getting talked about by everyone else is just odd to me.

He likes Borges, Visconti and Fellini, so he has that going for him.

"As you know, the duty of the conclave was to appoint a bishop of Rome," Francis told a cheering crowd of thousands packed into St. Peter's Square.
"It seems to me that my brother cardinals have chosen one who is from faraway. ... Here I am. I would like to thank you for your embrace."

May God forgive you, Pope Francis jokingly told cardinals after election, Cardinal Dolan of New York said. http://on.cnn.com/10EgbC5

I wish they had picked a trappist monk, because the world would have been drinking much better beer in the years to come.

That makes a lot more sense to me. St. Francis Xavier was one of the church's greatest missionaries, who died trying to get into China (and who held the then-modern record for conversions, only second to Paul 1500 years prior). And yes, Xavier is named for him as Loyola is named for Ignatius. They're both Jesuit universities.

The fact he is a Jesuit is definitely intriguing.

We were talking about the Pope at dinner and when we told the kids he chose the name Pope Francis my one son said, "Like the kid from the Big Nate books?!" Ha.

Ladies and Gentlemen, good evening," he said before making a reference to his roots in Latin America, which accounts for about 40 percent of the world's Roman Catholics .
Bergoglio often rode the bus to work, cooked his own meals and regularly visited the slums that ring Argentina's capital. He considers social outreach, rather than doctrinal battles, to be the essential business of the church.
He accused fellow church leaders of hypocrisy and forgetting that Jesus Christ bathed lepers and ate with prostitutes.
"Jesus teaches us another way: Go out. Go out and share your testimony, go out and interact with your brothers, go out and share, go out and ask. Become the Word in body as well as spirit," Bergoglio told Argentina's priests last year.

He may be against gay marriage, ordination of women, etc., but if he continues his mission of social outreach as Pope he will be revolutionary.

I thought charity and compassion were at the core of the Christian faith.

Does the changing of the pope actually affect any normal person?

I'd imagine the food vendors near St Peter's Square were rather positively affected.

Either I guess.

I'm not Catholic, nor overly religious in any way, but like Idoit I just don't see how this would affect any normal person on their day to day lives.

I'm not sure if by "normal" you mean non-religious (which I think, globally speaking, is not accurate), but I think if you were to ask Lech Walesa or any leaders of the Solidarity movement in Poland what effect the election of Pope John Paul had on their country, they would have a lot to say on the matter.

By normal, I mean an every day person not acting as a member of the clergy. Any catholic that either does or does not attend mass every Sunday.
