Argentinian cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been elected as the new leader of the Catholic church to succeed Pope Benedict who resigned last month.
White smoke billowing from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican early on Wednesday evening signalled that a new Pope has been elected by the conclave.

I believe that he is the first Pope from the Western Hemisphere, actually - the first Pope Not from Europe...


Well - okay, that drama is over - now the press can get back to important matters like the on going "Kardasian Girls Clown College"   - it's what they are best at anyway...

Wow, honestly didn't expect a result so soon. Good to hear.  And at 76 years old. this guy's only two years younger than Benedict was when he was chosen.  That is rather strange that they've gone for two elderly Popes in a row.  Not sure how long this guy's going to last at his post, maybe we'll have two Retiree popes in succession?

I couldn't understand a word he was saying from the balcony, but it could have been "Keep off the grass".

I watched via NBC online and the consultant they were talking to kept saying over and over what a robust guy this one is, so....?

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

+1 for selecting a Argentinian Pope. The Hispanics are numerous followers of the Catholic Faith so this is itleast a cathartic victory for them. And Im glad the Vatican heard there request for a South American Pope.

Perhaps the first good news Ive come across from the Vatican in many many years. But time will tell.

So who gets the prize for being the first to contrive some way of fitting him into the "prophecies" of that old fraud Malachy?

Someone who speaks Italian and could guess where from the surname “Bergoglio” comes.

Because Malachy spoke of Petrus Romanus.
Romanus we can fit easily: new Pope is Argentinian, but of Italian descent, so, obviously, Romanus.
Petrus could be Peter or anything resembling a rock, stone, boulder or such.
Jorge doesn’t fit, that’s just George, and George comes from Greek “farmer”. Yes, really. Mario is totally out.  
So, where from surname Bergoglio comes? From "Berg", hopefully? :D

The Tower of Babel... if it didn’t fall back then, it would fall now.

Malachy's prophecy aside, I have more up-to-date conspiracy: Francis I is the first Jesuit ever to become the Pope. Since Jesuits are traditionally in charge of the hardcore science in the Church (think Jose Gabriel Funes, also a Jesuit, also an Argentinian, and – director of the Vatican Observatory) the new pope choice clearly indicates the aliens are in contact with the Catholic church and the disclosure is about to happen.

I should do this professionally.

And he is a Jesuit *does a little dance and shouts Hurray*.  Wow, my local parish is run by a Jesuit Priest, can't begin to tell you the difference he has made in my attitude to the faith.  An outreach Pope who remembers that Jesus kept company with tax collectors, lepers and prostitutes - expecting good things from this guy. :clap: :tsu:

From the following article link:

http://news.ninemsn....ter-three-votes

The longtime archbishop of Buenos Aires has spent nearly his entire career at home in Argentina, overseeing churches and shoe-leather priests.
Like other Jesuit intellectuals, Bergoglio has focused on social outreach. Catholics are still buzzing over his speech last year accusing fellow church officials of hypocrisy for forgetting that Jesus Christ bathed lepers and ate with prostitutes.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

I hope I'm right when I say a true Jesuit is extremely unlikely to ever retire.
