3.13.13: a new Pope

Wikipedia didn’t waste any time on getting a page together for Pope Francis I, elected today in just the second day of the papal conclave.

You can read the continuing updating of the page of the new Pope here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pope_Francis

He is the first non-European, the first Jesuit, and the first one to use the name Francis, which more than likely came from St. Francis of Assisi. He is a champion of the poor, and while serving in his home country of Argentina, lived in a small apartment and took public transportation!

Hopefully, he can pull the Catholic Church together and get it out of the scandal it has found itself embroiled in for the last several years.
