    My comment is about your question regarding the role of women in the Catholic Church. In addition to everything that your guests stated about the significance of choosing the name "Pope Francesco" – Saint Francis was the first to create the women's Order of St. Clare , which I am hoping to symbolize also that Pope Francis would expand the role of women even more.Thank You Anderson for your live reporting from Vatican. I was at work and missed the election moment, but your recap and the thoughts of your guests brought tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. Although not a catholic myself, Saint Francis of Assisi has been a personal saint for me while living in Italy together with Santa Rita of Cascia.
