vatican and buenos aires, with a special edition of "gma." and good morning, america. robin off today. great to have elizabeth vargas and john muller here on this historic day. >> it is great to be here on such a big morning. >> it certainly is. right to rome right now where pope francis began his first morning as head of the catholic church by visiting rome's largest cathedral. something of a humble start. went through a side entrance before an icon of the virgin mary. see him right there, spent about 30 minutes in contemplation and went outside and see people kissing his ring. he's not really used to it this first day. almost seems if he wants to shake their hands, but, of course, he is going to get used to this. he is the leader of 1.2 billion catholics right now.
7:02 am
>> a man famous for being out amongst the people washing their feet so this must be a change. you may remember that last night he told those crowds packed in st. peter's square just after his announcement that he intended to pray to the virgin mary that she may watch over all of rome and pope francis told the cardinals that he plans to call on retired pope benedict in the next few days. >> something else we've never seen before. >> never seen that. >> coming up, pope francis signals a new start in so many ways. we'll speak with cardinal dolan of new york and start out with josh in vatican city. good morning, josh. >> reporter: good morning to you, george. and what a night, what history to have seen here as the world still reacts to the selection of pope francis as history's 266th supreme pontiff. actually check out this headline from an italian newspaper "la sorpresa di francesca." the surprise of francis. . judging from the reaction of the thousands massed here in the
7:03 am
square. it was a surprise met by euphoria as the church enters a new era now with a new man to lead it. this morning, as the world awoke, pope francis made a private visit to st. mary's basilica here in rome, staying for approximately half an hour. the vatican press office also told reporters that the new pope stopped briefly at the casa del clero, the residence he was staying prior to the conclave to fetch his belongings. of course, his new home, the vatican where last night after 7:00 local time, with a plume of white smoke shot in the cold, dark night sky and tolling of bells, the 100,000 faithful waiting in st. peter's square erupted. >> habemus papam. [ cheers ] >> reporter: after another hour of frenzied anticipation, cardinal jorge bergoglio emerged introduced as pope francis and
7:04 am
bowed to his people. [ cheers ] >> reporter: francis is the first jesuit pope and the first hailing from latin america home to 40% of the world's catholics. his attire spoke to his well-known commitment to the poor in argentina he wore a simple wooden cross and in his first address to his new congregation francis acknowledged his far-flung roots. [ speaking a foreign language ] >> translator: the duty of the conclave was to give a bishop to rome. my fellow cardinals found one at the end of the world, but here we are. >> reporter: he offered his vision for the church's uncertain future, one grounded in brotherhood. >> translator: let's pray always for each other. let's pray for the whole world. may there be a great brotherhood.
7:05 am
>> reporter: and when he left he attended masses with a new chapter for the catholic church beginning. actually shy and humble man later asked the crowd to pray for him and so pope francis begins this new chapter and he's off to a very busy start. later today he will celebrate mass with the cardinal electors in the sistine chapel where he was asked to accept the role as pope and then in five days' time on tuesday morning his official inaugural mass at st. peter's basilica behind me will take place so obviously a busy next few days for the new holy father. george? >> thanks, josh. let's get more on this with one of the men who helped elect the new pope, cardinal timothy dolan of new york. cardinal, thank you so much for joining us this morning. >> good morning, george. good to be with you. i miss you all at home. looking forward to having you back.
7:06 am
boy, you called it and predicted before the conclave this would all be over by thursday. it doesn't seem to have been a difficult decision. >> it seemed to be a clear sense of the holy spirit and of one another that this is the way the church needed to go and i'm grateful to god for the grace of direction that he gave us and i'm especially grateful we got a new pope. alleluia. i shouldn't say that. it's lent. >> i know you can't take us inside the voting but the sistine chapel and the moment you knew there was a new pope. >> yeah, that's a remarkably emotional experience, george. and even though we weren't surprised because we could see it coming as the votes are slowly tallied and as we've seen the direction that the holy spirit was leading us, but still the moment he got to the number needed, 77, was wonderfully inspirational. i don't think there was a dry eye in the house. what moved me was how the whole natured identity of jorge bergoglio changed and was transformed into pope francis. here was a man that just a
7:07 am
couple hours before we were pouring coffee with and walking through the halls of st. martha and chatting with and now he's our holy father and pledging our love and allegiance and prayer. it was a beautifully teaching moment when we just sensed what the church and what shepherding and pastoring is all about, george. >> what could you see on his face as those votes were being counted? >> he was very serene. he -- and, of course, as it became clear to all of us that he was probably going to be the man, we watched him a little more closely and he was remarkably at peace and did not seem to be rattled, did not seem to agonize over things, just was a man of resignation, which is a beautiful jesuit -- he's a jesuit. the founders of jesuits st. ignatius was the master in the art of discernment. >> pope francis groundbreaking in so many ways, first jesuit pope, first francis pope, also
7:08 am
the first pope from latin america. what is the most important thing you think people need to know about pope francis? >> well, you know, all the things that you talked about, george, you bet are important but i call them grave, good things on the pasta. what we were looking for was a man of holiness who obviously reflected god to us who was theologically converse apartment, a man who was a good pastor and a man who was a good communicator and a good leader, a good -- exercised good pastoral governance. when we found that, where he came from, what his age was, what his background was, that was all gravy and i think we got not only a good man but good gravy. >> safe travels too. >> you happy st. patty's day. i'll miss being in new york for our patronal feast day. >> to you too.
7:09 am
>> more to pope francis. outpour emotion about his selection in latin america and cecilia vega is in vatican city with a much closer look from being a chemist to the spiritual leader of 1 billion catholics around the world. it was a great day for you, yesterday, i know to be there. >> reporter: what an amazing story and experience. elizabeth, good morning. when pope francis stepped onto that balcony, the tens of thousands of people here in st. peter's square were cheering, they were crying, they were praying. it was simply electric. in so many ways this is a pope unlike any other. he is in a word a contradiction. a pious and humble man who dances the tango, loves wine and like most argentineans is an avid soccer fan with a team jersey and club membership card to prove it. a well liked but shy cardinal who chooses to sit in the back row at meetings.
7:10 am
a man who is now the leader of the catholic church. a jesuit at 76 years old, he comes from a part of the world which has never before produced a pontiff. and while today he is francis, to those who knew him as a child, he was simply jorge. "we used to play soccer in the plaza. he was very studious from a very catholic family and nice people." >> reporter: the son of an italian railway worker, jorge mario bergoglio and his four siblings grew up in buenos aires, an infection as a teenager cost him his lung but not his spirit. after studying chemistry he went to seminary becoming a priest when he was 32. until now, the pope has led a frugal life. when he became a cardinal he reportedly sold off the church mansion, opting to live in a small room in this downtown building with a simple bed and a small stove for heat. ♪ and he cooks his own meals. passing up those famous
7:11 am
argentinean steaks for skinless chicken breasts. he is also legendary for his compassion for the poor. as a priest he reportedly once gave all the money in his wallet to help the homeless family who wrote to him. but he is not without controversy either. creating buzz when he chastised priests for refusing to baptize the children of single mothers and criticized for not speaking out against his country's military dictatorship in the '70s and '80s. >> he's a man quietly charismatic. he wins affection by his gentleness and simplicity but not by being an actor. >> reporter: not an actor his fellow cardinals say but kind and surprisingly funny. >> he toasted us and he simply said, may god forgive you. in other words, i hope you don't regret this later. >> reporter: now, pope john paul ii made bergoglio a cardinal in 2001. when that happened his parishioners in argentina reportedly raised money to throw him a party. he said, thank you but told them
7:12 am
to donate that money to the poor instead and he ended up celebrating alone. now, all eyes are on pope francis to see how he carries over that sense of humility here at the vatican. elizabeth. >> cecilia, thank you very much. joining us is cardinal donald wuerl, archbishop of washington, d.c. and he was part of the papal conclave. cardinal, good morning and welcome. you know pope francis. >> good morning. >> you know pope francis very, very well. you sat next to him when he was still a cardinal at mass in the last morning in the conclave. are you -- did you imagine at that moment that he would be taking the center stage for the catholic church? >> well, i think that was part of the surprise, sitting there at mass with him and then chatting with him afterwards was altogether different than seeing him a little while later in white in recognizing our new pope. the excitement, though, of what he brings to this moment is so palpable.
7:13 am
it was such a joy simply to see him stand up now as the newly elected pope, a smile and then, of course, as we all saw when he stepped out onto the balcony and simply greeted people as you would anyone, he just said good evening and then, of course, there was the roar of applause. but i think what we have now for the first time in history, a pope from the new world. >> right. >> a pope from the western hemisphere. and someone who comes bringing a whole new fresh vision. >> well, he definitely brings -- cardinal, he definitely brings a fresh vision. he brings an incredible story of a life of humility. how do you think this man will adjust to the life of grandeur, the pressures of being the pope of the new catholic world? >> well, i think we already got
7:14 am
a little taste of that when he stepped out onto the loggia. he, while vested in white, didn't seem to lose any of that characteristic simplicity, charm, quietness. i don't think we'll see a lot of personality change in him. what he's going to have to do is take on the responsibility of leading this worldwide church, but i don't think that's going to bring to him a change in who he is. >> we heard him with his sense of humor, trademark sense of humor saying "may god help you" after he toasted you after you elected him pope and said he would go back to his old rooms to "pay his tab." do you think that will continue, as well? >> i think so. you know, when he walked into the dining room where we were all gathered after he stepped off the loggia and came down to have supper, he came into the room pretty much the way he did every other time in this
7:15 am
conclave. he is simply walked in, greeted the brother cardinals who were standing around, made his way to his seat as if nothing had changed. i think we're going to see a great simplicity of style, even though he now has this enormous responsibility. >> that, he does. cardinal donald wuerl from washington, d.c., joining us this morning from vatican city, congratulations on a successful and 25 1/2-hour conclave. good to see you here this morning, sir. >> thank you. thank you. >> and, george, we were talking just a moment ago. you said bishop francis may be the only argentine to do the tango and then decide i'm going to become a priest. we'll take that and see whether the pope does the tango. the big story for everyone who flies, the growing controversy over the tsa's decision to allow pocketknives on airplanes. tough questions on capitol hill and david kerley has the story.
7:16 am
>> reporter: even the union that represents 44,000 tsa officers this morning is joining air marshals, some pilots and flight attendants in opposing this move. in fact, flight attendants went straight to the head of the tsa saying letting blades back on planes is a bad idea. a very controversial decision. are you going to rescind your plan? >> no, i have to make sure that tsa's focus is on those things that are most destructive to the aircraft. >> reporter: the tsa administrator's plan to let small knives on board to concentrate on the real risk to planes. in the briefs you get is there something that scares you every day? >> yes. >> and it's not pocketknives? >> no, it is those nonmetallic improvised explosive devices, the bombs that are small, concealable and they are well designed, constructed. there is still a significant attempt and intent to get on --
7:17 am
particularly a u.s. carrier to blow it up. >> reporter: john pistole will play this video, showing how a small amount of chemicals can put a hole in metal like a fuselage in a plane but pistole says the cockpit doors have made it difficult to hijack a plane with a knife. even security experts question his move. >> it's really a hazard and it's a dangerous situation so to bring this back into the foray is beyond my comprehension. >> reporter: here's what the officers say, this is the kind of knife that will be allowed. it's a folding knife, small. you can tell this one will be allowed under the new rules. here's the problem, a knife like this, it has a locking blade, therefore, it would not be allowed. so when you bring your bag, how do you tell which one is allowed and which one isn't? the officers say it'll take them more time, george, the tsa administrator says that's not the case and will explain himself on the hill.
7:18 am

8:01 am
>> all morning long. >> things for your home. >> exactly. how can we work it in today? also -- >> what did we do to the floor up there? did you see that? i can't wait to get up there. it makes you dizzy. >> it does. it does. all designed to make you go buy more online. guess who is here, jim carrey live. it's so funny. we were just talking, george and i, about the fact that our kids love him. watching "liar liar" nonstop, my boys, but he has played some of the funniest movie characters ever not to mention the crazy hairdos. we can't wait to talk to him about his brand-new role in "the incredible burt wonderstone" and also a great wig on him. >> i'm hoping it was a wig. >> steve carell saying he was insane on the set. that's a good plug for the movie. also talking about shapewear and shapewear wars to be exact. the maker of spanx under fire right now. the maker, i should say, why she could be headed to court in a fight with a real housewife of new york city. >> wow.
8:02 am
>> the shapewear wars are heating up. i'll just try them all on and wear them all. >> i like to call it better living through structural engineering. >> yes, exactly. >> structural. >> i'm wearing it now, lara. i'm wearing it now. >> okay, samuel. >> all right. and guess who this is? take a look behind the screen here. it's our quest to introduce you to every one of the "dancing with the stars" couples. so you know who to vote for. they are hot, by the way and we're going to introduce them to you. >> do you have a clue? >> i don't because i was talking so much i didn't get a chance -- >> very good dancers. >> yeah, that was something. >> okay. we'll get to all that in a little bit, but right now to vatican city for the latest on pope francis and the vatican senior media adviser greg burke is joining us live from st. peter's square. good morning, greg. so great to see you this morning. we've seen so many interesting touches from pope francis in his first days now asking the crowd to bless him before he blessed them, clearly signaling
8:03 am
simplicity and humility. what more do we expect in the days ahead? >> well, i think we'll see more signs like that, george, you know, some really interesting things, the fact that last night he took the van down with the other cardinals rather than getting into the papal car. this morning he went back to the place where he had stayed before they moved on to the vatican proper for the conclave to get his things. it's one of these priest residences around here. they told me on his way out he actually tried to pay his bill which i found was funny. you know, here's the pope, practically owns the building now and tried to pay his bill. a lot of signs of simplicity and went to st. mary major's this morning. very much a sign there's a statue of our lady there, the safety of the roman people, he feels very much that he is the bishop of rome, george. >> and, greg, we're all going to be watching that first meeting between pope francis and the pope emeritus, something that has not been seen in hundreds and hundreds of years, if never.
8:04 am
>> yeah, no, well, you may be watching it or you may not be, george. it's going to be an interesting thing because right now we only know they had a private phone conversation. another interesting touch last night, one of the first things pope francis did was asking for prayers for pope benedict and a huge cheer from the people there and basic prayer, our father, hail mary, glory be. it is expected that pope francis will go out to the summer residence, castel gandolfo, about 20 miles outside rome in order to meet there shortly sometime before tuesday. >> so they did speak on the phone. what more do we know about what they said? >> well, i can't tell you exactly what they said, george, because i'm not privy to that but i'm sure it was one promising prayers for the other and the other right back at him. >> all right, greg burke, thanks for your insight this morning. now to john muller with the rest of the news. we begin with a growing uproar over a decision to allow small knives onto a plane, the first time they've done it since 9/11.
8:05 am
the head of the tsa can expect a grilling when he is questioned about this decision on capitol hill. just this morning the union representing 44,000 tsa agents became the latest to oppose the move but the tsa administrator insists allowing small knives will give those agents more time to search for explosives and other more threatening devices. just yesterday a man somehow got a stun gun past security at jfk airport. it was on his carry-on. police say the man had assaulted his ex-girlfriend and they finally caught up with him before he boarded a flight to london. police shot and killed a man in a shooting spree in the town of herkimer. four died in the attacks wednesday. the 64-year-old suspect was hiding in an abandoned building overnight. no word on the motive for the attack. this ter fieg fall. he ended up hitting the ground
8:06 am
at 30 miles per hour. he only sustained bruises. texting and driving at the same time is as dangerous as driving with a blood alcohol content twice the legal limit. and that's not even the big headline from the study. the big headline is that researchers have found that drivers who use hands-free devices aren't really much safer. all right. finally a sign of the times at mcdonald's. they will announce that they will be selling egg white mcmuffins. they'll even come on whole grain english muffins. mm-mm. don't worry, you can still get the cheese and bacon and rationalize it because it's just egg whites so give me super-sized bacon. how about that? >> bacon still negates it. >> pop news. >> indeed, let's get some pop news. good morning, everybody. good morning to you and we begin with dennis rodman's world tour. it continues from north korea now to rome where the former chicago bulls star has traveled hoping for an audience with pope francis i. there he is driving through the streets of rome in a modified
8:07 am
mercedes utility vehicle that is rather convincing -- >> looks like a popemobile. >> wait, wait, wait. >> a replica. >> is that real? >> yes, that's dennis rod messenger in -- >> no way. >> -- driving through rome. >> true. >> he told tmz that his people -- he told tmz that his people were in touch with the pope's people about arranging a meeting and that he wants to be anywhere in the world that he's needed, and he said "i want to spread a message of peace and love throughout the world," and hopefully he will share this part of his journey with george again on "this week." >> i'm in touch with the pope's people about arranging a meeting too. >> let's see who gets that meeting first, george, whether it's you or dennis rodman. who knows. >> i mean, you cannot make this up. >> wow. also in pop news this morning, remember the tv show "veronica mars." its die-hard fans certainly do and to ensure that it's made into a movie, kristin bell, who played the title roll and rob thomas launched a kick starter
