Since the beginning of his reign, Pope Francis has delighted and surprised the Catholic Church (and the world!) with his unique, unconventional approach to the papacy.
Pope Francis, or Jorge Mario Bergoglio, was born on Dec. 17th, 1936 in a barrio of Buenos Aires, Argentina. He was one of five children born to an Italian immigrant and his wife.
