Pope Francis is breaking with tradition and changing the tone of the papacy, both to the delight and chagrin of the Catholic Church.
Pope Francis also broke historic ground with his name choice, which is in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, a saint who championed the poor. It's the first time Francis has been used as a pope name.
