New Pope Already Chosen

White smoke rises, new pope chosen.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina elected as pope Wednesday to lead the Roman Catholic Church, a prelate announced to huge crowds gathered in St. Peter's Square.

He took the name Pope Francis, the cardinal said.
Cardinals elected Bergoglio on just the second day of a secret conclave to find a successor to Pope Benedict, who resigned unexpectedly last month.

Francis is the patron saint of poverty, simplicity, humility.
