Sister Judith Ann has lived to see seven different Popes, leading the church through its share of trials and tribulations.
She said she's excited to get to know the newest Pontiff. She said, "God sends who the world needs at particular times so they each bring their own gifts and talents."
For her, Pope Francis has already done something right. She said, "I love that he picked the name Francis!"
She said St. Francis took care of the poor and the needy, a task she and her fellow sisters strive to do every day. "I think that simplicity and that spirit of St. Francis and that focus is going to be so good and healthy for our world today."
In today's modern world, the number of Catholics who strongly practice the faith is the lowest it's been in four decades.
Sister Judith Ann said she believes Pope Francis has the qualities to bring back those who may have gone astray. "When he first spoke from the balcony that it will be in a way that many more people will be able to identify with and understand his message and be drawn."
The first ever "Francis" and first ever Pope from Latin America, she hopes he'll inspire billions of people across the world.
