Francis I (born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in December 1936) was elected on 13th March 2013.  The 266th successor of the St Peter, he is both the first Jesuit pope and the first pope from the Americas, coming from Buenos Aires.  He is also the first pope from outside Europe since Pope Gregory in the 8th century.  He has an enormous task ahead of him and we remember him in our prayers, and ask the Holy Spirit to guide him.
