Catholics the world over celebrate today the election of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina as the new Pope.
Francis I was elected on the second day of balloting and is the first Pontiff from the Americas and with his Jesuit roots is widely thought of as an advocate for the disadvantaged and a gesture to the Latin world, where the Church is gaining in numbers.
I'm no expert, but I did ask my advisor on matters of faith, Joe Brosk of Carthage, who was very impressed with the choice.
The largely shallow,venal and clearly secular MSM just kept telling us how he rides the bus in Buenos Aires. That was after they mused about the whiteness of the smoke and the need to clean out the corrupt Vatican.
Seems like Francis is a holy man, well educated and in touch with the people who actually go to church...Can't ask for more than that.
