Pope Francis - Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio Elected as New Pope

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina will be the new pope with the name Pope Francisco I. One hundred and fifteen cardinals locked away in the Sistine Chapel announced to the world Wednesday that a new pope had been selected when thick white smoke could be seen billowing out from the chapel's chimney. Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, 76, was selected and took the name Francisco, the first pope to do so in history.
