The College of Cardinals has elected Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the 76 year-old Jesuit archbishop of Buenos Aires, who has taken the name of Pope Francis. Born to Italian immigrants, he was raised in Argentina. He is the first pontiff from the Americas, home to more than half of the 1.2 billion-member Church. Just as Pope Francis prayed from the balcony overlooking St Peter's Square for Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, let us pray for our Holy Father..
O God, who in your providential design
willed that your church be built
upon blessed Peter, whom you set over the other
look with favor, we pray, on Francis, our Pope,
and grant that he, whom you have made Peter's
may be for your people a visible source and foundation
of unity in faith and of communion.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the
one God, forever and ever.
On September 29, 2012 it was announced that His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI had chosen Msgr. Strickland as the fourth Bishop of the Diocese of Tyler.
He was ordained to the episcopacy on November 28, 2012 by His Eminence Daniel Cardinal DiNardo, of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston with Bishop Alvaro Corrada, SJ of Mayaguez, Puerto Rico and Archbishop Michael J. Sheehan of Santa Fe, New Mexico assisting as co-consecrators.
