After weeks of continuous media scrutiny, there is now a new pope as Buenos Aires Cardinal Jorge Bergogolio has taken the title, going under the moniker Pope Francis I.

The news was revealed Wednesday as white smoke emerged from the Vatican, signifying that a new pope had been chosen. Not long after, Pope Francis I emerged onto the balcony where he was greeted by thousands of people packed into St. Peter's Square to catch the first sight of the new papal leader.
