To accept the blessings of the crowd and -- ask for God's blessings I have never hurt -- that quiet before in my life.
And he asked for help from the people this is a man who's going to be -- the people.
And I believe that that will be the mark of his paint the scene that he started off this way no one will ever forget this moment.
You talked before we knew his identity about the possibility of going with someone who was a little older.
He -- 76 years old perhaps to come in and sort of fix things and then pass the the time is that what's happened here it's a constant.

-- how many times he rejected the trappings of power tell us more he's a jesuit -- He's not necessarily expected to be humble as a jesuit but he has very much shown that hole through his career.

In certain areas of the church what does that mean -- It means that he's going to uphold the teachings of Christ as they've been given to him as he's passed them on as a bishop and then -- cardinal of the church.
He does not believe that he either as a cardinal are now -- Pope has the authority to change what Jesus taught us to do.
However he is very concerned with the difference in economic prosperity between the -- the richest and poorest he has spoken about that.
And said that there has to be some accommodation given to the tour.
He has talked about the need to care about our poor Brothers and sisters.
Sometimes that gets -- in trouble was more conservative wings but in this case I think we received Pope who.
