Pope Francis I, who is the first pope from Latin America, addressed the waiting crowd just over an hour after white smoke signalled his election. Addressing the masses gathered in St Peter's Square, he said "the world should set off on a path of love and fraternity". He added: "I would like to thank you for your welcome, the community of Rome, it's brotherhood, I thank you. Above all, I would like to pray for Pope Benedict XVI." Minutes later, a message was sent from the official papal Twitter account, which had been re-activated, which read: "HABEMUS PAPAM FRANCISCUM" - which roughly translates as "We have pope Francis."
