Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a former Auxiliary Bishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina, was selected by as Pope Francis I, the successor of former Pope Benedict XVI. Francis, who was not considered one of the front runners, was however selected only in the second day of The Vatican's conclave.

Francis has already been dubbed as "the first pope of the new world," because he hails from Argentina and is also a Jesuit, a somewhat more moderate and tolerant order within the Catholic Church. He, however, espouses views as conservative as the previous guy.
