New Pope is Elected

This is from CBC NEWS WORLD 

A new pope has been chosen to lead the Roman Catholic Church.

The emergence of white smoke from a chimney on the roof of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican indicated to the world that cardinals have elected a new leader for 1.2 billion Catholics.

The name and nationality of the new pope has not been made public yet.

The newly elected pope will be fitted for his white cassock, and the other cardinals in the conclave will then each individually swear obedience to him.

Before he appears on a balcony overlooking St. Peter’s Square, the new pope will stop to pray in the Pauline Chapel.

Ahead of the appearance on the balcony, French Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, the protodeacon, will announce “Habemus Papam,” Latin for “We have a pope!”

The new pope was selected after XXX ballots failed to produce a winner during a conclave that began Tuesday.
