VATICAN CITY (CBSDC/AP) – Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio from Argentina has been elected the new leader of the Catholic Church.

The 76-year-old – now known as Pope Francis I — was the archbishop of Buenos Aries and was appointed by Pope John Paul II.

Bergoglio became the first pope from the Americas elected and the first from outside Europe in more than a millenium.

Well I'll be damned... (NO pun intended..I sure hope)

Strange times for major change, indeed.

They usually say. The name chosen by the Pope usually indicates how he will do things.

St Francis was a rich kid that gave up that life to live a life of poverty.
Maybe some changes are in store for the church.

hi op

seems strange to me for this reason

For the last few days here in britain we have been bombarded with the referendum in the falklands
Argentenia says it means nothing. Out of all the inhabitants only 3 people voted against being part of britain
and the 3 people were Argentenian.

Not trying to make anything out of it, just seems a little strange.
cheers op

(sorry for spelling really bad)

Well, we know by order of the last Pontiff, his first thing will be to get handed the internal investigation report for whatever evils it shows. That was sealed specifically from anyone BUT the next Pope by direct order. So... I'm thinking he isn't in for a real good day after reading whatever got a Pope to quit.

Hmmm... Troubled times?

I'm not religious
But let's hope the wealth is the last thing on his mind, spirituality and a personal contact with your God should be his first message imho

When Ratzinger was a cardinal before even becoming elected he authored a paper which argued it would be okay if a sitting pope retired for health concerns. He was pushing for the idea before even being elected more than a decade ago.

Well I was confused at first....thought you meant the color of his skin. I am not Catholic so do not understand the significance. Perhaps I should do a little reading and find out just what the term means.

Sure looks like a white guy to me....I think in your haste to be the first person to post who the Pope you got it wrong. You need to do more research alright as this guy is Argentinian and he is not black.

Here is from wikipedia


"Black Pope" is a derogatory nickname given to the Superior General[1] usually by the media (and never used by the Jesuits themselves). The name comes partly from the color of the plain black priest's cassock, worn by members of the Society, including the Superior General, partly from a past concern (most prominent around the 16th and 17th centuries) amongst Protestant European countries concerning the relative power of the Jesuits within the Roman Catholic Church, and partly because the Superior General is elected for life.
Black Pope

So if this is the case then it would not apply since this guy was not the Superior General of the Society of Jesus.
