Catholic worshippers erupted in applause Wednesday at the cathedral in Buenos Aires upon news that the former Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina had been elected Pope Francis I.

Some 200 somewhat surprised worshippers gave the new pontiff a standing ovation after the announcement, as crowds and media descended on the cathedral, which is located on the historic Plaza de Mayo.
