The Papal Election of Pope Francis

Aleteia - published on 03/13/13

All of Aleteia's special coverage in one place

 On Monday, 4 March 2013, the cardinals convened for the General Congregations, leading to the election, on March 13, 2013, of Jorge Mario Cardinal Bergoglio, S.J. who took the name Pope Francis. Aleteia will be adding new stories about Pope Francis I every day over the coming week as we prepare for his coronation and Pope Francis I begins to lead God's people. We will come to know him together and learn how he will confront the challenges of the Church and the world.
