Several representatives from Creighton University, one of 28 Jesuit universities in the United States, say the new pope's Jesuit background could signal how he might serve as the leader of the Roman Catholic Church.
News accounts described Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, 76, of Buenos Aires as a humble man who lived in a spare apartment instead of an ornate church mansion. He preferred to sit in the back row when bishops met. He's said to consider social outreach, rather than doctrinal battles, to be the essential business of the church.
