Wow that's a surprise but he was already a strong opponent of Joseph Ratzinger in 2005. Good decision!

First Latin American Pope, First Pope from outside Europe in 1000 years, first Pope to choose a "new" name Francis.

Pope Francis is 76.

Good choice. I knew whoever was picked I was going to have some major disagreements with, but I'll say for this choice: He's a Jesuit and he's chosen to live a very simple, very humble life. That's a welcome change.

He looks very erm un-interested to me. He's just standing there.
He's talking to the crowd, that's good.

His parents were Italian emigrants maybe that influenced the decision of the Cardinals too. :-)

You know that the duty of the conclave was to provide Rome with a Bishop, it looks like my brothers the cardinals went to fetch him from the end of the world. I would like to thank you, the community of Rome. It's Bishop, thank you. Above all I would like to pray for Benedict XVI. Let's pray all for him, to god. So he can look after him.

Lord's Prayer now.

Glory to the father son and the holy spirit, forever and ever Amen. And now, let's start working together, walking together in the church of Rome. Which is the one that presides over all the churches. This is the one that is of love, brotherhood. Let's pray for each other, for the entire world because there is great brotherhood in thr world. I hope that the path we are about to take that my brother will help, it will be fruitful for the evangelisation of this city. And now I would like to bless you. But I need to ask you a favour, before the Bishop blesses his people, I would like you to pray to god for him to bless me. Let's pray silently. You pray for me.

This wasn't Pope Francis - Our Father Francis, blesses all the people here who are prepared to recieved his blessings. Through (all forms of communication) let's pray to god almighty to keep our Pope for a long time to provide peace and unity throughout the church and world.

I am going to bless you all, and the the entire world. All the men and women of good will.

His speech, as quickly as I could type.
