On Wednesday, March 13, a group of Catholic cardinals chose a new pope after two days of conclave: Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina.

Bergoglio, who will be called Pope Francis I, is notable because he is the first non-European pope in more than 1,000 years, the first ever to come from South America and the first Jesuit to be elected pope.

Pope Francis is known for a lifetime of teaching and leading priests in Latin America, a humble personal style and for modernizing a very conservative Latin American church.

Tell us: What are your hopes for the new pope? What is the significance in choosing a pope who is a “first” in so many ways? And what do you hope the Catholic Church will look like in 10 years?
