WORLD: Who Is The New Pope Of 2013?

Greetings Travellers!! If you are a well informed person you should be very aware of the bacchanal that took place in the catholic church a few weeks ago. Pope Benedict XVI became the first pope to resign in over 600 years. But have no fear, a new "man of God" has been chosen to fill the vacant vatican seat, Pope Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina, a 76-year-old Jesuit. He will be known as Pope Francis I and is the first pontiff from the Americas and the first from outside Europe in more than 1,000 years. He stepped out onto the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica about an hour after white smoke began billowing from the Sistine Chapel. “I would like to thank you for your embrace,” he told the jubilant crowd, adding that his fellow cardinals "went to the end of the world" to find a new pope.

Tens of thousands of people who braved cold rain to watch the smokestack atop the Sistine Chapel jumped in joy when white smoke first poured out, as the bells of St. Peter's and churches across Rome tolled, signaling a pontiff had been chosen. Elected on the fifth ballot, Bergoglio was chosen in one of the fastest conclaves in years, remarkable given there was no clear front-runner.

It's a very difficult job to be a pope but someone has to do it right. To be known as the "holiest" man on earth can be quite the sweat.
