Habemus Papam!

francescoAfter 2 days at the Conclave finally  Habemus Papam!  The 76 years old  Archbishop from Buenos Aires, Argentina Jorge Mario Bergoglio is the new Pope. He will be called Pope Francis (Not Francis I). He will not be only the first Latin American Pope but also the first jesuit Pope. Argentina already is celebrating as newspapers reported specially Buenos Aires where people started honking cars specially around the cathedral. Jorge Mario Bergogglio was known for his humility and an adovcate for the neediest and poorest. Just before the Conclave the press juggled with several names among the most papable, but nobody saw him coming not even in Argentina. On those days media not only played with names but also noted the humbleness of some cardinals like Phillipe Barbarin who used a bicycle while other cardinals arrived on luxury cars. Jorge Mario Bergoglio just simply walked. He works only with one kidney as he lost one when he caught an infection during childhood.

Video of the announcement and first encounter with Pope Francis the faithful parishioners of the catholic church, which around the world sums around nearly 1.5 billions.

Not 24 hours had passed as world leaders already congratulated and greeted him on expressed letters and some prepare to arrive for his first mass service that will take place on march 19th.
