Here at home, faithful gathered to pray for Pope Francis as he begins his new role as the head of the Catholic church."I'm so happy we have a pope from this side of the world," said Yolanda Guerrero. "All the popes were from the other side, so happy, pray for guidance for God to guide him."A thanksgiving mass was held Tuesday evening at the Corpus Christi Cathedral. It was a way for local Catholics to give thanks for the new leadership. Bishop Michael Mulvey led tonight's special mass.
