Cardinal Bergoglio has been elected as our new Holy Father! Habemus Papam!
Jorge Mario Bergoglio, born December 17, 1936 is the newly elected pope of the Roman Catholic Church. Taking the regnal name of Francis, after St. Francis of Assisi Bergoglio served as an Argentine cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church. Serving as the Archbishop of Buenos Aires since 1998, he was elevated to the cardinalate in 2001. He is the first pope to come from the Americas.
We pray for you, our Holy Father Francis!
We are infinitely thankful to God for having given us such a wonderful, wise and benevolent pope in Benedict XVI. We hope that the Church will be granted a worthy successor: a rock of faith, a leader open to the Holy Spirit, a pope prayerful and holy. For this reason we should offer our prayers that the Holy Spirit may guide, protect and enlighten our Cardinals when they determine the next successor of St. Peter. You now have the opportunity to actively be part of this providential endeavor by having a Cardinal assigned to you, who you will support through your prayer and intercession during the coming weeks before and during the conclave and for three days following the election.
