The University of Scranton shares
the joy of Catholics worldwide at the selection of His Eminence Cardinal Jorge
Mario Bergoglio of Argentina to serve as our next Pope. Pope Francis, as he has
chosen to be forever known, shares a special bond with Scranton and all Jesuit
colleges and universities across the globe as the first member of the Society
of Jesus to be so elevated. May we all pray for the success of his papacy and the
continued vitality of the Church in service to the people of God.
