The origins of connecting Francis with pop aptly comes from WYD Rio 2013. It was shortly before his visit to Rio that the youth there began referring to Francis as the "Pop Pope". These videos from the Novus Ordo church with the song POPE is POP sum up Francis and his pontificate. The Novus Ordo's last hurrah is the media driven popularity of Francis. Like eating cotton candy, Francis provides no spiritual substance nor does he pass on any traditional church teachings. What he does is sell poison to the masses while telling them it is spiritual nourishment.
