Six year’s ago today we heard the words Habemus papam (“We have a pope“) as Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected Pope on 13 March 2013. He took the name Francis after Saint Francis of Assisi. Pope Francis is the 266th pope and the first from the Americas.
We offer prayers today for Pope Francis today as he marks the sixth anniversary of his election.
