Statements from Current and Immediate Past Presidents of King’s on the Announcement of a New Pope

Father John Ryan, C.S.C., President of King’s College

“The name that a new Pope selects is very revealing.  St. Francis was a humble man and friend of the poor.  The new Pope’s selection of this name is a sign that he will extend his devotion for the poor and marginalized people of Argentina to the entire Church.”

Father Thomas J. O’Hara, C.S.C., Provincial Superior of the Congregation of Holy Cross, United States Province of Priests and Brothers and Immediate Past President of King’s College

“The United States Province joins our fellow Catholics around the world in praying for God’s blessings upon Pope Francis I. We trust in God’s Divine Providence that our new Pope will lead the Church with zeal and provide a faithful example of steadfast stewardship and love.”
