The Roman Catholic Church is celebrating! We have a new Pope!
His name is Jorge Mario Bergoglio and he is from Argentina in Latin America.
He is 76 years old and he chose to use the name Pope Francis. Pope Francis is the 266th Pope of the Roman Catholic Church.
For the first time, it is the Pope who asked the people to bless him.
