Despite "seeming anomalies" in the election of Pope Francis, a former ambassador to the Vatican said that seeing the event through the eyes of faith can give us a glimpse into the wisdom of the Holy Spirit.
"I have confidence in the College of Cardinals and the Holy Spirit," said Jim Nicholson, who served as U.S. ambassador to the Holy See from 2001-2005.
"They know very well what the Church needs today," he told CNA.
On March 13, Argentine Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected by the cardinals as the new Pope, taking the name Francis.
