"The new pope, Jorge Mario Bergoglio (pronounced Ber-GOAL-io), will be called Francis, the 266th pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church. He is also the first non-European pope in more than 1,200 years and the first member of the Jesuit order to lead the church."
"3 firsts" in one Pope: Latin American, Jesuit and non-European! I did not see that coming!
As a Latin American, who grew up in Cuban churches when the mass was still in Latin, I am so pleased that the Vatican has selected a man who was born speaking Spanish.
Good luck to Pope Francis! We should all say a prayer for the new Pope! And we say "muchas gracias" to the Cardinals who made this wonderful choice.
