Habemus papam! Pope Francis I

Posted on Updated on

We have a new Holy Father, Pope Francis I, Jorge Bergoglio, 76, Cardinal archbishop of Beunos Aires.

He is the first pope from the Americas, first from Argentina, the first Jesuit and the first with the name Francis.

Oremus! That he may guide and lead the Holy Catholic Church as it continues through the storms of time and life, with so many problems besetting It and the world. May he be devoted to the Blessed Mother and his Jesuit roots, favorable to Tradition, and continue a restoration of all things in Christ.

Pope Francis I was second in all the votes leading up to the election of Pope Benedict XVI in 2005.
