Sunday was Cardinal Francis George's final mass before he retires, due to cancer. Today Blase Cupich will officially become Chicago's new Archbishop. Making Blase Cupich the new Archbishop in Chicago was the first big decision that Pope Francis has made in the United States. Originally Cupich thought that he wasn't called to be a priest, but now he will be Chicago's new Archbishop. Some people believe that Pope Francis chose Cupich as the new Archbishop because of their similar ideas and to send a message to the church, but  Cupich says "I think he sent a pastor not a message."
