Millions in Rome cheered in excitement as a New Pope was selected. I spoke with a local head of the church, Father Jack McKone of Sacred Heart to get his reaction on the new Pope. he told me, "It's very exciting. Especially for the first time we have a Pope from the America's, and a Pope from Latin America...he's like his predecessor a deep thinker and both theologian and philosopher".
When asked what a new Pope will mean for Catholics, Father Jack replied, "I think it gives us clarity and a reference point. We have a concrete example of, the Persona Christi to look to, the figure of Christ.
