Catholics around the world are reacting to the election of Pope Benedict XV1.

Local Catholics call Tuesday's decision a good choice for the church. Sisters at the monastery in Lufkin call Pope Benedict a dynamic Christian determined to unify all Christians, not just Catholics.

Pope Benedict is the first German pope in a thousand years, but many believe his background will benefit all races and religions.

Sister Mary Annunciata said, "He speaks many languages, which is certainly a definite desirable quality. He brings with him, I think, the necessary qualities to the job."
