Habemus Papam!
March 13th, 2013

We have a pope!

As the white smoke poured out of the chimney and the bells rang at the Vatican, the bells also rang at St. Pius X in celebration of our newly named pope, Jorge Bergoglio from Argentina. Cardinal Bergoglio will forever be known as Pope Francis.

Throughout the Conclave, students, faculty, and staff prayed the Novena to the Holy Spirit to renew their devotion to the Holy Spirit and to remember the cardinals in Rome. Today, they paused from daily routine to watch as the cardinals selected the new Bishop of Rome. Live streaming news coverage of the chimney above the Sistene Chapel and the pope’s first blessing was available in the main hallway, cafeteria, and in the classrooms.

God bless Pope Francis!
