White smoke from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel:  "We have a pope!!!"

Jorge Cardinal Bergoglio (from Argentina) is elevated as Pope Francis.

"Yay, we have a new pope!!!" (Watching EWTN's coverage of the historic event)

We unite our prayers with that of Catholics around the world for the new Sovereign Pontiff:  Pope Francis.  On this month of St Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, we entrust the new leader of the Catholic Church to St Joseph's care, guidance and protection.  May the Holy Father uphold Truth as Christ instituted it.  And may Christ, the Pastor Bonum, Himself, work through Pope Francis in shepherding His flock.

Vivat Papa!!!
