Habemus Papam!

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Buenos Aires, Argentina has been elected the new Bishop of Rome!

He has taken the name Francesco (Francis, for us English speakers) after St. Francis of Assisi

His first act as Holy Father was to ask the crowd gathered in St. Peter’s Square for their prayers and blessings for him, so let’s answer his request with prayers for him, his spiritual and physical health, and for the Holy Spirit to guide his papacy.
