As a lifelong member of the LDS Church, I am happy for our Catholic friends that this man of God has been selected as their new Pope. According to my son who served his mission in Argentina, this man is beloved by all who know him, truely a humble and capable servant.

Congratulations to Pope Francis. May he follow in the footsteps of his namesake, the great Francesco d'Assissi.

May God bless the leader of His church, and the most important religious organization in the world.

God bless the new pope!

Pope Francis appears to be very much like Pope John Paul II and will be loved and respected everywhere.

I think I would appear "stunned" if I suddenly became the Pope. Listening to NPR this afternoon, I heard nothing but praise for this man. May he bless our Catholic neighbors.

I've had the opportunity to meet a lady in the past few months and the chance to become friends. She's a very humble person and a great example of how people of faith can live together with love and respect for one another. It's great to see such a man of peace chosen to lead her faith in such a time of adversity. Thanks Audry for the chance to share our views.

I was born and raised a Roman Catholic, but converted to the LDS Church at age 17. My parents thought it would be a "five minute wonder," but have seen and acknowledged what the LDS Church has done to bless my life.

Even though I am no longert Catholic, having been LDS for 45years, I still retain my love and respect for the many wonderful Catholic people that I have known, and do know, in my life. May God bless this new Pope with health and vigour to continue to bless the poor people of the church in the third world. He sounds like a wonderful man.
