One of Pope Francis' first official acts
was to meet with all the cardinals
at the Vatican's Clementine Hall to greet them and thank them
for their support during the first few days of his pontificate. “With this truthful gratitude, I impart, with all my heart, an apostolic blessing, and extend it to all of your collaborators and to the people trusted with your pastoral work.”
After his message, each cardinal, both electors and non electors, individually congratulated the new Pope on his election.
