Pope Francis only officially started his ministry today, but some are already convinced he’ll be the one to bring “reform” to the Catholic Church.

During coverage of today’s installation mass, a CNN commentator dubbed Francis the “hope and change pope”:

“He hasn’t actually done much in the way of real policy changes of initiatives, and he certainly is the hope and change pope, but he’s at the head of a body, the Vatican, that’s very resistant to change,” the commentator said. “I’ve read, for instance, that observers say that you don’t change the Vatican, the Vatican changes you.”
