BREAKING…………..CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS NEW POPE; WHITE SMOKE RISES


“We Have A Pope!”

 

 

VATICAN CITY (AP) — Cardinals elected a new pope to lead the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics on Wednesday, overcoming deep divisions to select the 266th pope in a remarkably fast conclave.

 

Tens of thousands of people who braved cold rain to watch the smokestack atop the Sistine Chapel jumped in joy when white smoke poured out, many shouting “Habemus Papam!” or “We have a pope!” – as the bells of St. Peter’s Basilica and churches across Rome tolled, signaling a pontiff had been chosen.”

 

CONGRATS to the NEW POPE and GOD BLESS HIM!
