    I think I remember reading years ago that it is not a matter of disrespect to call the Pope by his sir name....Bergoglio.

    It is rather a matter of custom. And a longstanding custom in certain areas, especially Italy.

    I can't find the particular post but I think it was explained on Fr Zs blog.

    Is anyone on this forum familiar with this custom?

    I've read that it's fairly standard in Italy although I understood that they would usually say "Pope Bergoglio".
