And now Branyan as he is with Fox News Latino.
And this was something we talked about on the plane over -- perhaps this would be the year.
The time that they would elect.
Any -- on Latin America.
Why I think it took so long because they were talking about this eight years ago during the conclave that elected.
Colonel Joseph Ratzinger.
You know I I don't know why it's so long and old alike he knows that now that it's happening Latin America has its success getting -- -- -- the crowd in Saint Peter's Square.
He just was about one country just wasn't just about Argentina it was a feeling that finally -- America has somebody that stands for that.
I can't during Pope Benedict -- as it was seven years.
There was -- there was a feeling that there was a disconnect between what was going on the -- church and what they actually believe.
And their -- on western must mention -- this individual's sexual abuse is everything to deal with all the outward things that were happening but internally they felt that they wanted somebody that represented their beliefs and I think we hope we -- Francis.
What I've been hearing what I've been seeing is that they feel like they finally have someone that were reasons that represents the common good that represents four.
And there is renewed hope.
Well we'll just bring a lot of Latinos back to the surgeon and I I used that term -- loosely because when you say the Latin America really has 40% of the world's Catholics it doesn't seem like they're they need to come back -- it seems like they're already there but there is a sense that there is a sort of a danger zone where there and then who even leaving the church -- little bits and.
I mean if you look at look at Brazil in 1970 Fata and in 9293%.
Of Brazil was Catholic now it's about 7075%.
-- Evangelical movement has been released.
Making big strides in South America and what they're hoping now is that -- -- Francis can bring that you.
Can you and you visualize and use his -- -- -- skills to bring people back to -- whether he'll do or not I don't know but what they're hoping.
Is apple finally sort of concentrating on the efforts that need to be made here because of Protestant church he's very he's he's very aggressive going to they're doing itself.
I think they're hoping.
That more teams comes in they're hoping that.
It's really a wait -- -- vehemently.
I want to let us look at securian Peruvians aren't you don't -- -- but there are a lot of -- and an -- in -- recently here in -- That are hoping that one of their own in the Italian shirts and Roman Catholic Church can open up.
The church to two ideas of making sure that they strengthening the the foot hole that is Latin America not just concentrating on what's happening more on the corner of making sure that they recognize.
Latin America and and the and and the importance that the Catholic religion aspect so it was just a huge a huge recognition of that -- -- it's it started off.
Well -- vote for an.
For instance you know what's coming up at the end of July is the world youth day -- it's going to be in Rio de Janeiro and before.
What Benedict resigned it was as Alex world youth day and he's going down to Brazil because of course Latin America house most of the great deal of the percentage of Catholics.
But now and you have a Latin American.
-- -- -- How much difference is that going to make in drawing young people.
Two catholicism and making it more reality to them instead of just sort of something.
That they do you know.
I wrote the one -- I've heard more than any of the cardinals went -- rumors before he was chosen Pope John Paul sent me and -- what we're hearing now.
After Pope with -- Francis is that they hope that you folks somewhat of Tom Paulson he's incredibly incredibly popular Latin America.
And it was Pope John -- -- ability to connect with the common person.
And to connect with young people that they are hoping that a humble somebody humble person Michael Francis.
Can do I think they're they're hoping that he can bring you back some fuses down.
There's there's reason for faith and and and that so everybody let's look at who sang we hope -- -- just like coming off one bottles -- -- -- What -- what is a Pope who is -- Latin America what does he bring different to the table then.
A hope would be fun to.
Cardinal Dolan out of New York said it doesn't make any difference -- it's -- that that's gravy it's that he's a holy person but clearly there's something different about a -- He's into it's -- pedigree it's it's -- he's been doing what he's grown he's grown up he's.
He's grown to a manageable cardinals -- inside and neighborhoods which four people.
-- -- -- now he's especially in Argentina during the during the injustice that was going on 1970s or arsonists are to war during during times of -- great poverty.
To have dinner and has -- you know knives and then come here and be able to preach to speak about it with your own experience.
He gives you credibility and people can and -- trust and I think.
I think we talked a lot Americans here it's not just about quite a sense not just pride for your country it is a great pride.
For the region and I think just having the face and -- recognition and understanding of that experience.
It was great for stats and there's already that that trust that you have to speak Spanish.
What what -- listen what what are you most looking forward to under the pay to see.
-- -- I can't -- for him to visit -- for the very first time I can't wait to see.
The reaction he's going to -- I'm I'm hopeful and I'm optimistic just like many of the people -- square.
Magic can really.
And -- -- -- young people are in Europe and I I think just like other Latinos around the world.
We will hope he makes us proud and I think he started off by doing that just by coming out -- the illusion.
And and representing us the humble and and and a great place I had a great hope and optimism that you'll be able to represent us and be proud wonderful.
Brian is from let's let's you know dot -- -- around.
On a -- with -- thank you so much.
