Pope Francis
We have a pope!  Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, S.J is now Pope Francis.  He is 76 years old, Arch-Bishop of Buenos Aries Argentina since 1998 (cardinal since 2001).  He is the first pope who is a Jesuit, the first pope from South America, and first pope to take the papal name "Francis".  He is also the first non-European pope in many hundreds of years. 

As he asked, make sure to keep him in your prayers - he needs them.
