"He's the first ever pope from the Americas, an austere Jesuit intellectual who modernised Argentina's conservative Catholic church.

Known until Wednesday as Jorge Bergoglio, Pope Francis is respected as a humble man who denied himself the luxuries that previous Buenos Aires cardinals enjoyed.

In the past, the 76-year-old Pontiff has accused fellow church leaders of hypocrisy and of forgetting that Jesus Christ bathed lepers and ate with prostitutes.

He often rode the bus to work, cooked his own meals and regularly visited the slums that ring Argentina's capital.

He accused fellow church leaders of hypocrisy and forgetting that Jesus Christ bathed lepers and ate with prostitutes.

"Jesus teaches us another way: Go out. Go out and share your testimony, go out and interact with your brothers, go out and share, go out and ask. Become the Word in body as well as spirit," Bergoglio told Argentina's priests last year.

Bergoglio's legacy as a cardinal includes his efforts to repair the reputation of a church that lost many followers by failing to openly challenge Argentina's murderous 1976-83 dictatorship." -extracted from website, link above

Gone is Jorge Bergoglio, welcome Pope Francis;
You collide with a Roman Catholic Church
Seemingly bent on destroying itself,
From within; it would have been better
If enemy was an outsider, trying to destroy
The churches good name and standing;
But such a scenario is dead and non-
Existing... The chair is a heavy one;
Its load - a tough load to carry; we hope
Good hopes for you; with a past like
Yours, let us pray that Jorge Bergoglio
Too has a say, and not a popes devised,
Papal, agenda alone. Stand firm, always
Remember your oath and vision for
The church.
