I have just been watching this on ABC News. I was quite shocked about the pick. Me and my husband had a small bet going on who would be named the next pope. I thought it might end up being an Italian and my husband was betting on a black pope. LOL, we were BOTH wrong!

At times I almost dream, I too have spent a life the sages' way,
And tread once more familiar paths. Perchance I perished in an arrogant self-reliance
Ages ago; and in that act, a prayer For one more chance went up so earnest, so
Instinct with better light let in by death, That life was blotted out—not so completely
But scattered wrecks enough of it remain Dim memories as now, when once more seems The goal in sight again. -- Robert Browning, Paracelsus

The new leader of the Catholic Church is the Argentine Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio who has taken the name of Pope Francis.

Bergoglio, 76, is a Jesuit from Buenos Aires and is the first pope from South America. He is also the first pope to take the name of Francis.

The new pontiff stepped onto the Vatican balcony dressed in white to address the roaring crowd in St. Peter’s Square where he humbly and calmly asked for the peoples’ prayers.

“Let’s pray always for each other. Let’s pray for the whole world. May there be a great brotherhood,” Pope Francis said in Italian.
He wished that the “voyage with the church that we begin today” be “successful in spreading the gospel.”

A hush fell over the crowd when the pope said, “Let us pray silently in this prayer for me,” and bowed his head.

Pope Francis recited the Lords’ Prayer and the Hail Mary before making the sign of the cross to bless the crowd estimated to be more than 100,000 people.

“Brothers and sisters, I leave you. Thank you so much for the warm welcome. Pray for me and we’ll see each other soon. Tomorrow I want to go pray to the Madonna. And I want to wish to all of Rome. Goodnight and good rest,” Pope Francis said with a laugh and a wave before leaving the balcony among cheers and bells ringing.

Here is a little history on Jesuit Order or Society of Jesus, founded by Ignatius of Loyola and St. Francis Xavier: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S…..y_of_Jesus

God Bless and Good Luck to the new pope!

I was thinking about Cardinal Marc Ouellet of Quebec if they chose an American cardinal.
