Habemus papam!

And nope, wasn’t me 😉

Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina was elected in a “surprise” (according to Reuters News) choice (not a big surprise to many because he was the number 2 choice last time) to be the new leader of the Roman Catholic Church today, the first non-European pontiff in nearly 1,300 years (Syrian born Gregory III in the eighth century), and said he would take the name Francis (not Francis I, as noted in the media. He become I when there is a II). Bergoglio is the first Jesuit to become pope.

So it appears that his name is for Francis of Assissi but I would think, as a Jesuit, it would be for Francis Xavier?

I wonder if this dude got a good shot of the new pope?
