From the Chicago Tribune this weekend came the story of the man who had the foresight to register the domain “PopeFrancis.com” and who was a cool enough person to give it to the Vatican instead of using it for personal gain:
The Vatican has officially accepted a gift to Pope Francis from Chicago lawyer Chris Connors: a fitting domain name, popefrancis.com.
Connors, who bought the domain in 2010 on a lark, had secretly hoped a pope would choose the name Francis in his lifetime, something no pope had done before.
When Pope Francis, previously Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, chose the name in March, Connors quickly offered to sign it over to the pope for free.
I’m waiting for Elizabeth Scalia to extend Pope Francis an invitation to be part of the Patheos Catholic Channel. If anyone could pull it off, The Anchoress could!
A question for you: What do you think should be done with the PopeFrancis.com website?
