We were expecting "Peter the Roman" (Petrus Romanus) in accordance with St. Malaky's prophesy, but that may yet find a way to become evident and for this to be the final pope.
WomensOrdination.org may be disappointed that he, the Church's "Holy Father" as Zeus' representative on Earth, was selected. But his selection should not have come as a surprise given that he came in second place in the last (s)election process.
The Vatican, Inc. knows what it's doing... and that is generally not doing the bidding of laypeople, the poor, the children, or the celestial spheres. On the upside, Francis I may be more open to Liberation Theology.
