Pope Francis: A Piece to the Puzzle, or Whole New Picture?

I have a more lengthy post that I am trying to write about the “Battle” going on currently in the blogosphere over who Pope Francis is, and how various “groups” within the Church view him as our new Pope.

While doing so I ran across an image that I pray will become the reality of his Papacy. Now, I don’t believe we really know what his Papacy will be like as it is much, much too early. That being said, folks are laying down their money and placing their bets.

In a perfect world, Pope Francis would maintain a line of continuity with the past two Popes and become a piece of the overall puzzle. The following picture is my hope for the pontificate of Pope Francis:
