Francisco, whose real name is Jorge Mario Bergoglio, is the 266th Pope in the Catholic Church. He was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on 17th December of 1936. He was chosen on 13th March of 2013 by the members of the College of Cardinals, because Benedicto XVI had resigned. The members of the College of Cardinals agreed in the fifth ballot. He is the first Pope born in America and the first who is Jesuist.
When Pope Juan Pablo II died on 2 April of 2005, Jorge Mario Bergoglio was considered one of the favourites to occupy his position.
Apart from Spanish, he fluently speaks Italian, German, Latin, French and English. He studied chemistry, human studies, phylosophy and theology.
Pope Francisco was ordained on 13 December of 1969, and ordained cardinal by Pope Juan Pablo II on 21 February of 2001.
In my opinion, I like this Pope a lot, because he was changing my vision of the Catholic Church.
