We have one happy new pope here!
Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio is our new pope and he will be called Pope Francis. He is the first Latin American pope and the first from the Jesuit order to be elected on the highest seat in Catholic Church.
Here are some facts about Pope Francis...
1. Rather than living in archbishop's palace, he chose to live in an apartment and ride a bus instead of a limousine to go to work.
2. He cooks his own meals.
3. He advocates social justice. He strongly opposes same-sex marriage, abortion and euthanasia.
4. He lives with only one lung. His other lung was removed when he was still young due to infection.
5. He doesn't have a Vatican experience.
6. He was one of the runners-up of Pope Benedict XVI during the 2005 conclave.
7. He was accused of kidnapping two priests in Argentina in the 1970s. No case was filed.
8. He speaks Italian and German aside from his native tongue Spanish.
