Argentines Weep and Pray to Celebrate Appointment of Pope – Bloomberg

Argentines thronged Buenos Aires’s cathedral in central Plaza de Mayo square, where some knelt to pray and others wept for joy, after Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was named the first non-European pope in over 1,200 years.“This is a sign from God for Latin America,” said Ramiro Arnulphi, a 23-year-old law student from the western province of Mendoza, as drivers blew car horns in celebration. “I came to thank God for this blessing for Argentina and the world.”
