Catholics: Your views on new pope

Roman Catholic cardinals have elected a new pope: Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now known as Pope Francis. He hails from Argentina and is the first South American pope.


We’re interested in hearing from Catholics all over the world. What do you think about the new pope? How do you want the pope to shape the church and inspire your faith? What issues should he prioritize?


Upload a video with your thoughts – please keep it to 30 seconds. Your stories could be part of CNN’s pope coverage.
