The likeable Francis I

Published March 15, 2013 by Tony

What is it that makes a new Pope well-accepted?

Pope francis

Why the new Pope Francis immediately hit and has been well accepted?
Much has been said about him, that his opening speech out the Vatican’s balcony liked, because is a Jesuit, or because seems determined and humble. But in my opinion, when for the first time we see an elected Pope, what is most striking is his face and bearing.
This usually is not mentioned, but it happens on every occasion when for the first time we meet someone. Unfortunately, the saying that “we can’t judge a book by its cover“, in these cases is never true, because about the factors of first impression, comes into play various elements that give to this first impression of ours a positive or negative indication.
What most impressed us all looking at this new Pope’s face, was his sympathy, having a face that inspires confidence, as well as happened with Pope John XXIII or with John Paul II.
Whatever one may say, also the “eyes want to be satisfied“, and if we look at the previous Popes, see that all those who had, on the surface, a hard face that limited sympathy or which even gave a sense of discomfort, they did not receive an immediate great benevolence, at least a first glance.
Psychology teaches us this, and unfortunately it’s so.

Look at the (previous Popes) faces below and say, in all honesty, what they inspire you at first glance.

For those interested, here is the translation of the winning song’s lyrics.

THE ESSENTIAL
the heroes say
“when the going gets tough,
it is to play!”
Blessed are they then
if exchange insults with the good.
It happens to us
to make the war and then aspire to
peace
and in my silence
delete each your single pain.
To appreciate what
I could not choose.

As the world falls apart
I compose new spaces
and wishes that
belong to you
that always are to me
the essential.

I will not accept
another error of assessment,
love is able to
hide behind lovely words
that I have spoken before
they were empty and stupid.

As the world falls apart
I compose new spaces
and desires that
belong to you.
As the world falls apart
I walk away from the excesses
and bad habits,
I will go back to the origin,
I get that you are to me
the essentia

Love does not follow the logic
Takes your breath away and thirst.

As the world falls apart
I compose new spaces
and desires that
belong to you.
As the world falls apart
I walk away from the excesses
and bad habits,
I will go back to the origin,
I get that you are to me
the essential.
