New Pope! by Julian Martinez c/o 15

March 13, 2013 was the day that the Vatican told the world what’s going on in the Papal Election. At 7:00pm Vatican Time, the infamous White Smoke appeared from the Conclave. The World was watching to see the new pope of the Catholic Church.

The pope who was elected from the conclave is…Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergolio, also known as Pope Francis I. 

Let’s see- who is Pope Francis? He’s Argentinean, meaning that he is the first Non-European Pope to rule the Catholic Church and the first pope from the Americas. He is 76 years old, and healthy to rule. Although, he is missing a lung tissue, there’s nothing to worry about, he’ll live. He supports the LGBT with respect, but opposes Same-Sex Marriage and of course, Abortion and Contraception. 

“It’s about time we got a new pope, I’m so glad we finally got a healthy living pope. I’m hoping that he will do a good job,” said Anonymous #1. So, Pope Francis is the 1st South American Pope to rule the Vatican, the last time we got a Non-European is well, never until now. He did replace Benedict XVI after he resigned early this year.

And now, welcoming the new pope are the people of a pleased world. 

He was elected Cardinal in 2001 working with Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI. He hailed from some organization called the “Society of Jesus” and was an Archbishop of Buenos Aries in Argentina until his Cardinal Debut in 2001. “We finally got a new pope in the Catholic Church and let me say, I’m surprised that it’s Bergolio who took the job as Pope, Congratulations Pope Francis,” said Anonymous #2.

The whole world saw it, America saw it, and even Houston saw it. So Congratulations Pope Francis, for being elected as pope.
