A majority of cardinals in Vatican City elected Jorge Bergoglio of Argnetina.  He'll be known as Pope Francis.

 

Bishop Liam Cary of the Baker Diocese that serves central Oregon was impressed by the swift and decisive vote.

 

Pope Francis apparently came in second place at the last conclave in 2005.

 

"To me there's grounds for a great deal of confidence.  Not all of these cardinals were at the conclave in 2005, but many of them were.  So they wre judged by them to be worthy.  And the fact that he remians in their minds and they settled on him so quickly -- it's impressive."

 

Pope Franics is the first non European Pope in hundreds of years and the first from Latin America.
