Latin announcement of Pope Francis

Friday, March 15, 2013

I was watching the announcement live yesterday and was pleased to hear Latin spoken for the first time in a while. My Latin not being especially good, I thought after hearing that either: 1) the Pope's name is Francisco, or 2) something to do with the Franciscan Order that I didn't understand was announced. Luckily it was the former.

I found the following on the Portuguese Wikipedia giving the Latin announcement with translation in Portuguese:

Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum:Anuncio-vos com grande alegria
habemus Papam!temos um Papa!
Eminentissimum ac Reverendissimum Dominum,O Eminentíssimo e Reverendíssimo Senhor
Dominum Georgium MariumD. Jorge Mario
Sanctæ Romanæ Ecclesiæ Cardinalem BergoglioCardeal da Santa Igreja Romana, Bergoglio
qui sibi nomen imposuit Franciscum.que adotou o nome de Francisco.

After a quick glance at some other Romance Wikipedias I don't see a translation in any of them.
