Habemus Papem

Cardinal Jorge Maria Bergoglio, now Francis I, has been elected the newest pope:

Just over an hour later, the 267th Successor of St. Peter has been announced by the senior cardinal deacon: It is Cardinal Jorge Maria Bergoglio, 76, who had been serving as the archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

He takes the name Francis.

 He has been chosen for our times. That is all that matters (RE: everyone who wanted a Canadian pope- like you would go to church anyway).

A list of popes. Do note note how many North African popes there were and also keep in mind that Saint Peter, after whom all succeed, was not European or North American.
