Argentine Pope

Simon Langer, 87 walks home with groveries near where Jorge Mario Bergoglio lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Langer said he remembers Bergoglio playing football in the area. Bergoglio was elected in a surprise choice to be the new leader of the Roman Catholic Church, taking the name Francis I and becoming the first non-European pontiff in nearly 1,300 years.
