Vote

Based on what you know about Pope Francis, do you think he will make a positive impact?

Yes. He seems like a good leader who will reform the Church. Yes. As the first South American pope he will increase the Church's reach. No. The Church faces so many difficulties it doesn't matter who the pope is. No. I think another pope would have been a better choice.
