Jorge Mario Bergoglio
Born December 17, 1936 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Pope Francis’ given name is Jorge Mario Bergoglio. He was the eldest of five children, with a father who was an Italian immigrant, and a mother who was born in Buenos Aires. Before going into the seminary, the Pope spent some time working as a chemical technician and a nightclub bouncer.
Elected as the 266th Pope, his Papacy began on March 13, 2013. Pope Francis has found a special place in the hearts of men and women throughout the world. His warmth, frugal lifestyle, humility and compassion for the poor have been an inspiration for all of mankind. While this humble leader is viewed as a soft-spoken man, he holds passionately to beliefs on some of the most controversial issues of today.
