Greeting cardinals

Newly elected Pope Francis, right, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina, greets Vatican Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone in the Clementine Hall at the Vatican. Pope Francis on Friday urged leaders of a Roman Catholic Church riven by scandal and crisis never to give in to discouragement, bitterness or pessimism but to keep focused on their mission.
