Like any morning, I would pick up my phone and start scrolling down the twitter timeline to catch a glimpse of what happened on the other side of the world. Today however, is no ordinary morning. My tweets are filled with Habemus Papam! An exclamation that a pope has been chosen!
Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio has been elected by the cardinals electors. His Eminence takes the name Pope Francis after a saint of peace and poverty. The first pope from Latin America. The first Jesuit to become pope.
Habemus Papam! We have a new pope!
