Pope Not To Be Known As Francis I After All

ImageAmid excited scenes in Rome after the announcement of the election of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Bishop of Rome and Pontiff, it was announced that he is to take the name Francis. In a break with tradition, he will not be known as “Pope Francis I” until another Pope bearing the same name comes along. During his Pontificate, he wishes to be known as His Holiness Pope Francis Solus Unus Tam Longe. Rendered in English, this is Pope Francis The Only One So Far and is a name chosen by Cardinal Bergoglio following time spent ministering among Anglican pedants.
