    Catholics: Your views on new pope

    More from JannetWalsh

    Pope Francis - Updated

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     JannetWalsh, a Catholic, talks about the significance of the new pope's choice of the name Francis. The Vatican has confirmed that the choice is in honor of St. Francis of Assisi. "St. Francis was about reform," she says, displaying her San Damiano cross, traditionally associated with St. Francis of Assisi. "I think it's pretty significant that the new pope has taken the name of Francis. This is very telling, and I think it's very exciting today to be a Catholic." See her video on what issues she hopes the new pope will prioritize.
