First South American Pope Ever

by Associated Press posted Mar 13 2013 3:53PM
 The new Argentinian pop shyly waved to the crowd in St. Peter's Square and marveled that the cardinals had had to look to "the end of the earth" to find a new pontiff.
 
     Jorge Bergoglio asked for prayers for himself, and for retired Pope Benedict XVI, whose resignation paved the way for his election.
 
     Bergoglio had reportedly finished second in the 2005 conclave that produced Benedict - who last month became the first pope to resign in 600 years.
