Habemus Papam: Francis, formerly Cardinal Bergoglio, is first American pope

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum:
habemus Papam!

Eminentissimum ac Reverendissimum Dominum,
Dominum Georgium Marium
Sanctae Romanae Ecclesiae Cardinalem Bergoglio
qui sibi nomen imposuit


In the Name of the Father,
and of the Son, +
and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

V. Let us pray for our Sovereign Pontiff, FRANCIS.

R. May the Lord preserve him, 
and give him life, 
and make him blessed upon the earth, 
and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies.

Our Father... (and the rest silently, until:)

V. And lead us not into temptation.
R. But deliver us from evil.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee:
Blessed art thou amongst women, 
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,  pray for us sinners, 
Now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory be to the Father,
and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning, 
is now, 
and ever shall be:
world without end. Amen.

Let us pray.

O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people, look mercifully upon Thy servant FRANCIS, whom Thou hast chosen as shepherd to preside over Thy Church. Grant him, we beseech Thee, that by his word and example, he may edify those over whom he hath charge, so that together with the flock committed to him, may he attain everlasting life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

In the Name of the Father,
and of the Son, +
and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
