Pope Francis

Francis (born Jorge Mario Bergoglio) is the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church.

Born: December 17, 1936; Buenos Aires, Argentina

Pope:  March 13, 2013
Cardinal:  February 21, 2001
Bishop:  June 27, 1992
Ordination:  December 13, 1969

Bergoglio entered the Society of Jesus as a novice on March 1958 and officially became a Jesuit on 12 March 1960.

Pope had chosen the papal name Francis (lat. Franciscus) in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi.

His motto, «Miserando atque eligendo», is taken from a homily of St. Bede on Мat 9:9-13, who commented that Jesus "saw the tax collector and, because he saw him through the eyes of mercy and chose him, he said to him: 'Follow me'".

Pope dedicates his papacy to Our Lady of Fatima

At the Holy Father’s personal request, Cardinal Jose Polycarp, the Patriarch of Lisbon, consecrated the pontificate of Pope Francis to Our Lady of Fatima on her feast day.

“I want the Church to go into the streets”

I want the Church to go out into the streets, I want us to defend ourselves against all worldliness, opposition to progress, from that which is comfortable, from that which is clericalism, from all that which means being closed up in ourselves. Parishes, schools, institutions are made in order to come out … if they do not do this, they become a non-governmental organisation, and the Church must not be an NGO”.
