(PRWEB UK) 20 March 2013
On Wednesday 13 March, the white smoke of the Sistine Chapel was released, announcing to the Catholic Church and the world that the new Pope had been elected. As Rome came to a standstill, Argentina’s Jorge Mario Bergoglio was announced as the new Pope. The Argentinean Jorge Mario Bergoglio is to be called Pope Francis and has promised “A journey of fraternity, of love and trust among us.” Crowds gathered, celebrated and waited for a glimpse of the new Pope at his famous Vatican balcony as he now leads the Roman Catholic Church. The celebrations are thought to continue for a long time as Rome continues to be in the spotlight whilst Pope Francis starts his schedule and takes on his role as the new Pope.
