Habemus Papam (Jesuits Rule! Edition)

The hardlearning staff, being a double-Jebbie (Fordham Prep class of ’67, Xavier University class of ’71), couldn’t be more pleased with new Pope Francis I, Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina.

Not that it really matters to us: Our Catholicism lapsed like a magazine subscription 45 years ago.

But we also remember when Black Pope Pedro Arrupe took on Pius XII back in the ’60s, much to the consternation of Cathaholics worldwide.

Now the Jesuits, who were great teachers but hell on Saturday night, have finally gotten their moment.

Somewhere, Pedro Arrupe is smiling.
