Fox News - over 1 year

Archbishop Kissag Mouradian says he developed a friendship with the pope when Jorge Mario Bergoglio was the Roman Catholic archbishop of Buenos Aires in the 1990s.

Pope Francis Sends First Lent Message Focusing On Poverty And Generosity
Huffington Post - almost 3 years
Pope Francis has picked the theme "He became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich," for his Lenten message this year, according to a Vatican statement on Friday, reports the National Catholic Reporter. The pontiff has repeatedly emphasized the importance of caring for the poor and vulnerable, so it comes as no surprise that he wants Catholics to remember the needy during this sacred time of Lent. The line comes from a verse in Paul's Letter to the Corinthians, which says: For you know the generous act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich. 2 Cor 8:9 This year, Lent will begin on March 5, and the full text of the pope's Lent message is expected to be released by the Vatican on February 4. Though this is Pope Francis' first Lenten message as Pope, a look at his 2013 letter as Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio shows the intense concern he's always had for the poor. He chose t ...

Pope Francis: Is the people's pontiff a revolutionary?
Yahoo News - about 3 years
When Italian journalist Gianni Valente traveled to Argentina to cover the country's economic collapse in 2002 for a Roman Catholic magazine, he came away not with just a story in his notebook but with the seeds of a friendship with a man who struck him as a singular priest – a man with a broad-spectrum empathy, whom the journalist continues to this day to call "my priest." Mr. Valente says that Jorge Mario Bergoglio – then-cardinal of Argentina – seemed particularly close to the people; Cardinal Bergoglio's ability to see "the heart of each individual," says Valente, became clear in his own life, as a friendship formed between the two men, over the phone and through letters. It's a small detail about the priest who became Pope Francis, but it is a clue to how a relatively unknown religious leader of South America has become a global sensation in the first six months of his leadership of the Catholic Church.

Pope Francis showcases patience after little boy joins him on stage
Yahoo News - about 3 years
That's the exact sentiment another little boy expressed in Rome after the pope visited his parish in May. For a Christian Science Monitor cover story on Pope Francis and his global appeal which is hitting the stands this week, I visited the church to talk to members about how they felt in the presence of the new pope. One woman, Clementina Favoccia, said that her son told her after mass, “Mom, he felt like a grandfather.” This kind of patience is something the pope has said he learned over time, according to his biographers Sergio Rubin and Francesca Ambrogetti. As the auxiliary bishop in Buenos Aires, Jorge Mario Bergoglio once had a train to catch to a retreat at a convent on the outskirts of Buenos Aires.

US 'eavesdropped on Vatican in run-up to conclave'
Yahoo News - about 3 years
US secret services allegedly eavesdropped on cardinals before the conclave in March to elect a new pope, Italian weekly magazine Panorama claimed Wednesday. "The National Security Agency wiretapped the pope," the magazine said, accusing the United States of listening in to telephone calls to and from the Vatican, including the accommodation housing cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio before he was elected Pope Francis. The allegations follow a report on surveillance website Cryptome which said the United States intercepted 46 million telephone calls in Italy in December 2012 and early January 2013. Among those, "there are apparently also calls from and to the Vatican," Panorama said.

Vatican Jesus Medal Recalled After Embarrassing Misspelling
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Whoops! Looks like the Vatican needs spell-check. A medal commissioned to commemorate the pontificate of Pope Francis has been abruptly recalled after the Vatican realized that it had misspelled the name of someone fairly important to the Roman Catholic Church. That person is Jesus. Or "Lesus," according to the papal medal. The medal, produced by the Italian State Mint, has the inscription "Franciscus Pont. Max. An. I." as well as a portrait of Pope Francis on the front side. The reverse side was meant to carry "the quotation that moved the young Jorge Mario Bergoglio when he felt the call to the priesthood: 'Vidit ergo Jesus publicanum et quia miserando atque eligendo vidit, ait illi sequere me,'" according to Catholic Culture. The motto is taken from a homily about the call of St. Matthew, and in English reads as, “Jesus saw the tax collector and by having mercy chose him as an Apostle saying to him: Follow me," according to Catholic World Report. However, it appears ...

Pope sets out vision for more women and gay people in 'new' Catholic church
Guardian (UK) - about 3 years
Pope Francis gives wide-ranging interview to Italian journal and urges Catholics to show 'audacity and courage' in drive for reform • Highlights from the Pope's interview Pope Francis has set out his desire to find a "new balance" in the Catholic church, calling for greater involvement of women in key decisions and a less condemnatory approach towards gay people, divorcees and women who have had an abortion. In a wide-ranging interview with an Italian Jesuit journal, the Pope calls for the Catholic church, the world's largest Christian church with 1.2bn members, to face up to the need for reform. Offering a dramatic contrast to the traditional conservative approach of his predecessor, Benedict XVI, Francis says the first reform must be one of "attitude", adding that unless a new balance is found, "the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards". The Pope urges Catholics to show "audacity and courage" in their approach to people who, in the past, have been ...

'Francis' Cologne: Fragrance Inspired By Pope's Humble Personality
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Pope Francis' personality has been encapsulated in fragrance form with the release of a pope cologne by Excelsis Fine Fragrances. CEO Frederick Hass founded the company in 2005, after obtaining a recipe for Pope Pius IX's cologne, and has gone on to create other papal scents like "Benedictus" in 2006, and now "Francis." But what does the pontifical scent smell like? Hass told the Christian Post that he tried to evoke Pope Francis' "humble and down to earth" character with the cologne, which mainly consists of bergamot and sandalwood. "I didn't want to get anything too flashy," Hass explained. "So I wanted something subtle and dignified and relatively simple." A press release from Excelsis stated that the new cologne was created in response to popular demand. On the response, Hass commented, "We are hearing words like 'gentle,' 'simple,' 'warm,' 'pleasing' -- and even 'heavenly' -- used to describe the new fragrance. These are precisely the terms used by the media and the new Pope' ...

Crowd Braves Cold Rain For Pope's First Public Mass
Huffington Post - over 3 years
APARECIDA, Brazil — Pope Francis urged Catholics to resist the "ephemeral idols" of money, power and pleasure in celebrating the first public Mass of his initial international foreign journey as pontiff during an emotional visit to one of the most important shrines in Latin America. Thousands packed into the cavernous Basilica of the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida, tucked into an agricultural region of verdant fields halfway between Rio and Sao Paulo, and tens of thousands more braved a cold rain outside to catch a glimpse of the first pope from the Americas returning to a shrine of great meaning to the continent and him personally. Before the Mass, Francis stood in silent prayer before the 15-inch-tall image of the Virgin of Aparecida, the "Black Mary," his eyes tearing up as he breathed heavily. It was a deeply personal moment for this pontiff, who has entrusted his papacy to the Virgin Mary and, like many Catholics in Latin America, places great importance in ...

Religion in Brazil: Earthly concerns
The Economist - over 3 years
ABOUT 40% of the world’s Roman Catholics live in Latin America and 123m of them in Brazil, more than in any other country. So it is doubly fitting that Pope Francis, the first Latin American pope, should make his debut as a foreign traveller by spending a week in Brazil from July 22nd. The trip, to mark the church’s World Youth Day, was scheduled before the elevation of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the former archbishop of Buenos Aires, to the papacy. But it is likely to set the tone of his tenure in the Vatican.Unlike Pope Benedict, who spent most of his last visit to Brazil with bishops, Francis is due to meet young people, visit a hospital, attend two events on Copacabana beach and visit a favela in Rio de Janeiro that was until recently controlled by a drug gang. The new pope’s identification with ordinary people and shunning of Vatican luxury is likely to go down well in Brazil, which has recently seen big marches against political corruption and for better public services. But in Br ...

'My Brother Was Abandoned' By Pope Francis
Huffington Post - over 3 years
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Pope Francis was harshly criticized on Thursday in an Argentine courtroom, where a woman said he didn't help protect her brother from the country's military dictatorship. Graciela Yorio accused Jorge Mario Bergoglio of turning his back on her brother, the late Jesuit priest Orlando Virgilio Yorio, before and after he and another priest were taken by the junta's agents and tortured in 1976. Bergoglio has said he did what he could as a young Jesuit leader with no real power to protect Yorio and other slum priests from being kidnapped by the right-wing junta. He testified in 2010 that he worked behind the scenes to win the freedom of Yorio and the other Jesuit slum priest, Francisco Jalics. Graciela Yorio disagreed. "My brother was practically abandoned by the church," said Yorio, who is one of more than 800 witnesses in a two-year trial of 67 defendants accused of human rights violations against 789 people who were detained at the ju ...

Greg Carey: Why Our Bodies Matter
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Immediately following the election of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as pope came the predictable speculation. From the United States and other wealthy nations, folks wondered what the new pope would say about issues related to gender and human sexuality. What about birth control, homosexuality and women's leadership in the church? Did the new pope really support civil unions for gay and lesbian couples in Argentina, as some reported? Others, including many from Latin America, Africa, and parts of Asia responded to Pope Francis' commitment to a simple lifestyle and his commitment to economic justice. While some fretted about his relationship with the Argentinian military dictatorship during the 1970s and 1980s, most have been impressed with his social witness. In one of his first public acts, Pope Francis entered a youth detention center in Rome and washed the feet of young offenders. Lots of observers might wonder, "Why is the church expending so much energy on controversi ...
