Pope Francis I
Some years ago I was asked by a papal nuncio if I thought it were possible for a Jesuit to become pope--after all, Jesuits are forbidden to seek or accept ecclesiastical office unless specifically commanded by the one with the authority to do so.
I told that nuncio that I thought it possible, and that one day, if it were the will of God, it would happen. Apparently, I was correct in my double assertion.
May God grant our Holy Father many years. And as we often say in the Society of Jesus, Ad multos annos!
