New pope elected – let’s celebrate!
Cue the white smoke: Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, who will now be known as Pope Fancis I, was elected today to lead the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics.
And, no matter your faith, pope memorabilia and products can be yours. Canada’s The Globe and Mail reports best-selling religious items include rosaries, as well as magnets, medallions and frames featuring Pope John Paul II. Those types of items with Pope Benedict XVI’s picture? Not so hot, the newspaper adds.
