Statement from University President Kevin P. Quinn, S.J. on Naming of New Pope

03/13/13
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.
