Habemus Papam

History In The Making  
Today, after a fast conclave, the Catholic church has elected a new sheperd - the 266th pontiff - following the surprise resignation of Pope Benedict XVI.  The Roman Catholic cardinals elected Jorge Mario Bergoglio (seen above) of Buenos Aires, Argentina as Pope Francis I to lead the world's 1.2 billion Catholics. While, I am not Catholic, I share in their joy and hope for the future. Congratulations and Deus benedixerim!
