The new Pope

After just five ballots, on the second day, it seems that the conclave of cardinals made their choice for a new pope. The first Jesuit and the first from South America where 42% of the word's Catholics live he will be known as Pope Francis 1.

Hopefully the former Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio will prove to be a good choice but I can’t help but wonder if he is the right one because, at 76, he is not young, neither is he in good health having only one lung, the other was removed when he was a teenager due to infection.
