A Catholic News Agency story says everyone felt a little Argentinian and extremely happy today, according to members of diverse religious orders who attended the Pope's Mass and installation the morning of March 19, the feast of St. Joseph.

"Today everyone feels Argentinian, or at least us Latin Americans do," said Peruvian priest Father Jose Tola in St. Peter's Square. "I'm extremely happy and excited," he told CNA during the inauguration Mass of Pope Francis which officially began his pontificate.

American Cardinal William J. Levada described it as "a wonderful and exciting day." "It's a beautiful day here: Saint Joseph's feast day, installation of the new Holy Father, so I'm all excited and we pray for him, " said the cardinal, who is prefect emeritus of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith.
