Join us tomorrow for live coverage of the new Pope installed at Mass
4:12pm Monday 18th March 2013 in News
Join our live blog coverage of Pope Francis as he is officially installed at a Mass in St Peter's Square, Vatican City, Rome.
Catholic cardinals decided Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the archbishop of Buenos Aires, would be the new leader of their church last Wednesday night.
The 76-year-old Argentine takes over after Benedict XVI unexpectedly stepped down, and he is the first pope to be chosen from outside Europe for more than a millennium.
Follow our live coverage from 7am on Tuesday, ahead of the Mass at 8.30am UK time.
