Without a doubt the media attention given to the election of a new pope reached an all-time high this past week. Worldwide coverage was given to the election of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina as pope.

The Roman Catholic Church cardinals, meeting in Rome, elected on the fifth ballot a cardinal who took the name of Pope Francis I. His election was a “first” in several categories: First pope from the Americas; first Jesuit pope; and first to take the name Francis. He has been described as a man of simplicity. He believes in social justice and has a strong reputation of working among the poor and afflicted. He is a traditionalist in Catholic teachings.
