Catholics in Argentina should be very proud..I am not familiar with how this all works but isn’t Bergoglio the first Argentinian to be elected Pope?
He’s the first person from the Western Hemisphere to be elected Pope.
First Argentinian and first Pope from the New World!!
He is indeed the very first Argentine to be elected Pope. I saw Pope John Paul II when I was stationed in Buenos Aires. There are an awful lot of Italo-Argentines there and I’m sure they’re all over the moon.
