In a surprisingly short conclave, the Roman Catholic cardinals elected a new pope yesterday. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the archbishop of the Buenos Aires diocese, became the first Jesuit and first Latin American to be named pope.

Monsignor Jerry Vincke of the Lansing diocese is stationed at the North American College in Rome. He shares what the process has been like and introduces  Pope Francis the First.
