I l.o.v.e him so far!  Love his name.  Love his simplicity.  Love that he's not from Europe.  

In some ways, he reminds me of my pastor.  <3

People were speculating Cardinal Dolan. I would say. I've heard they'd never pick an American for a Pope.  It's nice to have a Latin American. Someone not from Europe for a change.

I'm very excited about the decision, was hoping they would look to South/Latin America region this time around. I'm watching the commentary on NBC and I think it's the cardinal from NYC they are talking with. He has nothing but good to say about the new pope.

There are rumblings that his papal name will be Francis.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Argentina!  The first Jesuit pope.

I love the pageantry, and that there are so many people there waiting days for the announcement. It gives me a good feeling that there is so much excitement.

I'm not Catholic but it certainly is exciting to see history in the making.
