White smoke: Jorge Bergoglio from Argentina has been elected new Pope, will be known as Pope Francis.

VATICAN CITY — Argentine Jorge Bergoglio has been elected pope, the first ever from the Latin America. He has chosen the name Pope Francis.  Shortly after the announcement, Pope Francis appeared on the balcony over St. Peter’s Square to greet a cheering crowd. The tens of thousands of gathered to celebrate as the white smoke went up and the bells of St. Peter’s Basilica chimed.

The Catholic church’s new leader waved to the crowd and asked for prayers for himself and for retired Pope Benedict XVI, who resigned last month. It took five
rounds of voting to elect Bergoglio as the 266th pope. Despite their being no clear frontrunner, the 76-year old was chosen in one of the fastest conclaves in years. Pope Francis will now serve as the leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics. http://www.cbn.com/cbnnews/world/2013/March/Black-Smoke-Rising-Papal-Vote-Enters-Second-Day/
