Cardinal Bergoglio of Buenos Aires has been elected Pope. He has taken the papal name Francis, presumably after Saint Francis of Assisi.

Like his new namesake, Pope Francis is apparently a humble, simple man; according to his thumbnail profile on the Pontifficator, he took the bus to work, and asked his supporters to give to the poor rather than buying tickets to Rome to support him at the conclave.

Again, according to his Pontifficator profile, Francis will likely make reform of the Curia (the Vatican's civil service) a priority. With the recent reports of scandal and corruption coming out of what should be a beacon of salt and light in the world, it will not be a moment too soon.
