“Francis Xavier and Francis de Borgia are both Jesuit Saints and I am assuming Pope Francis will also be devoted to them. But he has chosen his name in memory of Saint Francis of Assisi, evidently because of his poverty. Saint Francis of Assisi’s charisma is the charisma of poverty of the various Franciscan orders. Also, this coincides with the social consciousness of justice and charity carried out by the man who has been up until now Cardinal Bergoglio.”

6. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Jose Ramon Busto, Jesuit Professor of Theology:
“What is strange is not that there have not been any Jesuit popes so far, but that there is a Jesuit pope now. Saint Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, was reluctant that we Jesuits occupy ecclesiastical positions, not only outside the order but also inside. Therefore, Ignatius of Loyola preferred Jesuits not to hold the post even of bishop.”

“I think it’s great. I think he chose it (the name Francis) partly because of Saint Francis Xavier and partly because of Saint Francis of Assisi, and I think that’s great.”
9. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Rosario Ruiz Parra, Vox pop:
“Saint Francis could be Assisi, Borgia, Xavier… anyway it’s fantastic for a pope to finally bear the name.”

STORYLINE
Catholics have been intrigued by the choice of Francis as the name taken by the new pope, Argentina’s Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, as it is a name that has never been used.
Most people believe Pope Francis, the first Jesuit pope and first non-European since the Middle Ages, chose the name in reference to Saint Francis of Assisi, the humble friar who dedicated his life to helping the poor.
But there are other important religious figures who bear the name, two of them from the Jesuit order to which the new pope belongs.
The Jesuit movement – known for its scholarship and outreach work – was founded in the 16th century by Ignatius of Loyola, a Spaniard from the Basque region.
Two important figures from the early history of the order were Francis de Borgia, whose remains are kept in the eponymous church in central Madrid, and Francis Xavier.
Both were Spanish Jesuits who lived in the 1500s.
“Francis Xavier and Francis de Borgia are both Jesuit saints and I am assuming Pope Francis will also be devoted to them,” explained Jose Ramon Busto, a Jesuit Professor of Theology in Madrid.
Busto also explained why it had taken so long for a Jesuit to become Pope.
“What is strange is not that there have not been any Jesuit popes so far, but that there is a Jesuit pope now,” he said.
“Saint Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, was reluctant that we Jesuits occupy ecclesiastical positions, not only outside the order but also inside. Therefore, Ignatius of Loyola preferred Jesuits not to hold the post even of bishop,” Busto added.
The 76-year-old Bergoglio, said to have finished second when Pope Benedict XVI was elected in 2005, was chosen on just the fifth ballot to replace the first pontiff to resign in 600 years.
The son of middle-class Italian immigrants, Pope Francis considers social outreach, rather than doctrinal battles, to be the essential business of the church.
