Title: Pope Francis I

Pope Francis I
  • We have a Pope!

(No Transcript)
  • Pope Francis - the first Jesuit pope - has spent
    nearly his entire career at home in Argentina.

  • Jorge Mario Bergoglio, 76, reportedly got the
    second-most votes after Joseph Ratzinger, the
    last pope, in the 2005 papal election.

  • He was born in Buenos Aires, one of five children
    of an Italian railway worker and his wife and was
    ordained to the priesthood in 1969.

  • He became Pope Francis after a surprisingly quick
    conclave winning 77 votes, or two-thirds of the
    115 cardinals' votes, on the fifth ballot.

  • His decision to pick the name Francis evokes key
    Christian tenets such as simplicity and humility.
  • And they are fitting for a man who, spending
    nearly his entire career in Argentina, is known
    for catching the bus and eschewing the luxuries
    of high office.

  • Tens of thousands of Catholics flocked to the
    Vatican City last night to witness Jorge Mario
    Bergoglio's unveiling as Pope Francis I.
  • The Argentine son of an Italian railway worker
    was chosen as the 266th pontiff on the fifth
    ballot of the conclave of cardinals last night,
    with the Sistine Chapel's symbolic white smoke
    revealing the decision.

  • But despite the most daunting of starts to his
    new role, Pope Francis thought it best to start
    his first papal address with a joke.
  • He told the thousands of soaking Catholics
    huddled in the Vatican City's St. Peter's Square
    that the cardinals had gathered to 'give Rome a
    bishop' but said that they had 'gone to the ends
    of the earth to get one'.

  • The multilingual Pope's birthplace will be seen
    as a significant move to a continent in which 42
    per cent of the world's Catholics live.
  • He is first non-European Pope since the Syrian
    Gregory III in 731.
  • He becomes the third non-Italian Pope in a row.

  • Thousands of worshippers crammed into St Peters
    Square. At 6.06pm UK time, the white smoke began
    to billow signalling that a second day of voting
    had been successful. Soon after it was announced
    that the conclave had returned the Archbishop of
    Buenos Aires as Pope.

  • French Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran announced
    Habemus Papam! Latin for We have a Pope
    before introducing him to the world in Latin.

  • Emerging onto the balcony in his white cassock,
    the new Pope addressed the crowd in Italian,
    saying Brothers and sisters, Good evening. Lets
    start this path of the Church of Rome together,
    bishop and people together, (a path) of
    fraternity, love and trust among us.

  • Lets pray for one another, for the whole world,
    so that there is great fraternity.
  • His first act was to lead the crowd in a prayer
    for the Pope Emeritus, Benedict.
  • He led the faithful in reciting the Lords Prayer
    and asked the crowd to pray for him before
    blessing the people gathered in St. Peters
    Square and bidding them goodnight.

  • The Vatican has said he chose the name Francis
    after St. Francis of Assisi, who formed the
    Franciscan order, saying that the new Pope is a
    'lover of the poor'.

His first speech as Pope
  • Brothers and sisters, good evening!
  • You know that it was the duty of the conclave to
    give Rome a Bishop. It seems that my brother
    cardinals have gone to the ends of the earth to
    get one... but here we are... I thank you for
    your welcome. The diocesan community of Rome now
    has its Bishop. Thank you!
  • And first of all, I would like to offer a prayer
    for our Bishop Emeritus, Benedict XVI. Let us
    pray together for him, that the Lord may bless
    him and that Our Lady may keep him.
  • (Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory Be... )
  • And now, we take up this journey Bishop and
    People. This journey of the Church of Rome which
    presides in charity over all the Churches. A
    journey of fraternity, of love, of trust among
  • Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray
    for the whole world, that there may be a great
    spirit of fraternity. It is my hope for you that
    this journey of the Church, which we start today,
    and in which my Cardinal Vicar, here present,
    will assist me, will be fruitful for the
    evangelisation of this most beautiful city.

  • And now I would like to give the blessing, but
    first - first I ask a favour of you before the
    Bishop blesses his people, I ask you to pray to
    the Lord that he will bless me the prayer of the
    people asking the blessing for their Bishop. Let
    us make, in silence, this prayer your prayer
    over me. (...)
  • Now I will give the blessing to you and to the
    whole world, to all men and women of goodwill.
  • Brothers and sisters, I leave you now. Thank you
    for your welcome. Pray for me and until we meet
    again. We will see each other soon. Tomorrow I
    wish to go and pray to Our Lady, that she may
    watch over all of Rome. Good night and sleep

  • A trained chemist, he has been a cardinal since
    2001 and is known for his humility, for years
    living in a modest apartment, rather than his
    official residence and taking public transport
    rather than his official limousine.

  • The native Spanish speaker, who will be
    inaugurated on March 19, is multilingual, also
    speaking German and Italian - the language of the

And the name...
  • He chose the name Pope Francis I, after St
    Francis of Assisi and is the first pope from the
    Americas and the first from outside Europe in
    over a thousand years.
  • The Vatican said it is a homage to St. Francis of
    Assisi, the 13th century Italian founder of the
    Franciscan order, describing him as a 'lover of
    the poor'.

  • St Francis of Assisi is a man who turned his back
    on power and wealth to dedicate himself to a
    radical life of Christian poverty, evangelisation
    and peace-making.
  • St Francis was so holy that, according to
    Catholic belief, he received the stigmata, the
    five wounds of Christ, in his own body while
    still alive.

  • The attraction of taking the name of a man who
    founded a religious order may be strong given
    that the new Pope is a member of an order
  • He belongs to the Jesuits, or the Society of
    Jesus, which for the 400 years the most popular
    order in the Catholic Church and its members were
    known for the bravery and academic excellence.
  • The choice of the name of the new pope may also
    be connected to one of the first Jesuits St
    Francis Xavier a close colleague of the 16th
    founder, St Ignatius of Loyola.
  • St Francis was a missionary who took the Catholic
    faith to India and the Far East after Ignatius
    persuaded him to turn his back on a medical

  • On his personal account, he tweeted shortly after
    the decision, writing 'Perhaps a little humility
    in saying I am simply representative of God on
    Earth, just as God is representative of me in
  • He followed this 20 minutes later with a message
    saying 'Extremely happy to be the new Pope,
    Francisco I'.

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
  • Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where
    there is hatred, let me sow love where there is
    injury, pardon where there is doubt,
    faith where there is despair, hope where there
    is darkness, light and where there is sadness,
    joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so
    much seek to be consoled as to console to be
    understood as to understand to be loved as to
    love. For it is in giving that we receive it is
    in pardoning that we are pardoned and it is in
    dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen
