New Pope Elected: Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Argentina

76 year old Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Buenos Aries in Argentina has been named the 266th Pope. He's the first Latin-American Pope in the history of the Catholic Church, which is the longest running institution in the history of mankind...almost 2,000 years old.

The new Pope was the archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina before he was elected to lead the Catholic church. He was ordained for the Jesuits on Dec. 13, 1969. He has chosen the Papal name - Pope Francis 1.

God Bless Pope Francis. And the whole church. Amen.

So St. Malachy in your other post was wrong? He predicted a Petrus Romanus and not a Bergoglio. Anyway, at least we can hear something other than the elections for a new pope. Finally!

Although not Catholic, I have stayed behind after work to know who the new Pope will be. As a Christian I believe such a person irrespective of colour or race should be strong in upholding the Christian values which many souls have lost amidst cries of rights etc.

All this bitter ppl still dey? @Sombody special and Anon 8:59..... Catholics worshiping Mary/Pope or asking Mary to pray for them is better than worshiping General Overseers, At least we see Mary name for Bible, Show me whr ur GO name dey. There is fire out break in ur house, call pastor, ur wife is in labour, call pastor, ur child is sick, call pastor. Pastor na God? U no fit pray ur way out. Less i forget, among all mankind, Mary is the only woman that can call Jesus, My Lord, My Savior, My Redeemer and My Son. That Womb bore the Son of God.
