No, the OTHER Francis!

With the media and blogs going on and on and on about the simple, humble and poor-loving new pope all summed up with the choice of this name, Francis, I pose just a slight "deep breath" and ask you, dear reader, to consider that this Jesuit pope MAY be thinking of some of his own Francises:

St Francis Xavier SJ

St Francis Regis SJ

St Francis Borgia (yeah, really) SJ

St Francis de Geronimo SJ

Then again, maybe he's just a really big Pixies fan:*

Black Francis: Actually had a band called the Bad Catholics.
We need a pope from BAD CATHOLICISTAN to reach out
to the large population of BAD CATHOLICS!

*Nineties? Anyone? Anyone?
