Francis I, the new elected leader of the Catholic Church.

White smoke rose yesterday March 13, from the chimney announcing the election of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio as the new Pope. the Argentinian Cardinal, was elected in the second election day to head the 1.2 billion Catholics of the world


The first Pope from South America, the first Jesuit and the first to assume the name Francis and the first non-European Pope in the last 1,300 years

He is known for his simplicity. He chose to live in an apartment rather that the archbishop’s palace, passed on a chauffeured limousine, took the bus to work and cooked his own meals, Allen wrote.

Francis has a reputation for being a voice for the poor.
