Archbishop Chaput: Pope Francis A 'Wonderful Choice'

Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput described Pope Francis as a priest of "extraordinary intellectual and cultural strengths" in a statement issued not long after the conclave elected the new pope Wednesday.

In the statement, Chaput said "He (Pope Francis ) is a wonderful choice, a pastor God sends not just to the church but to every person of good will who honestly yearns for justice, peace and human dignity in our time."
