Argentine Pope

Father Enrique Lopez of the San Jose de Flores Church speaks to the media inside the church where Jorge Mario Bergoglio is said to have received the call to become a priest, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. 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. The new Argentine Pope has attracted world-wide attention to the area. (Australfoto/Douglas Engle)
