    "As you know, the duty of the conclave was to appoint a bishop of Rome. It seems to me that my brother cardinals have chosen one who is from far away, but here I am. I would like to thank you for your embrace, also to ... the bishops, thank you very much. First and foremost, I would like to pray for our emeritus pope, Benedict XVI. Let us pray all of us together … so that he's blessed by the lord and guarded." - Pope Francis, formerly Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, in his first address as pope, according to CNN. As an Argentinian, he is the first non-European pope.
