Francis I

The new pope is a Jesuit, and comes from Argentina.  On the first full day of balloting.  Wow!

I wish the new Holy Father well, and hope that his papacy is long and fruitful.  And, for those who were hoping for an American pope, it looks like you have one.  The Lord works in mysterious ways.  Be careful what you pray for.

I was thinking the same sort of thing. "I guess the folks wanting an American Pope should have been a bit more specific..."

That said, so far the guy seems to be a mensch. Let's see if that impression holds.
