              The Catholic community of the Diocese of Youngstown rejoices at the election of Pope Francis, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina.

            Pope Francis has said he will be a bishop of the people, and asked the world to pray for him, while he blesses us.

            We offer the new Pope our best wishes and promise him our prayers as he continues the mission of St. Peter to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the world.
