Argentine Catholics flock to mass to honor new Argentine pope

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Argentine Catholics flooded to mass on Sunday to celebrate newly-elected Pope Francis, a fellow Argentine. Parishioners packed the cathedral in Buenos Aires, waving papal flags and carrying photos of Francis, who was announced as Pope on Wednesday. He was formerly known as Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio. Francis is Latin America's first pontiff, breaking some 1,300 years of European papacies. Apostolic Nuncio to Argentina, Archbishop Emil Paul Tscherrig, celebrated the mass and asked Argentines to pray for Pope Francis. Sunday's mass initiates three days of prayer in Argentina to honor the pope.
