Habemus Papam Latino!

The first Latin American pope, Argentina's Jorge Bergoglio, is a theological conservative with a strong social conscience, and a modest man who declined the archbishop's luxurious residence to live in a simple apartment and travel by bus. Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio becomes first Latin American and first Jesuit to lead Catholic Church taking name pope Francis.

The decision to take the papal name Francis, the first pope to name himself after the legendary St Francis of Assisi, was also surprising because it evokes a life of simplicity and humility far removed from the splendor of the Vatican.
