Papa Francesco | Franciscus PP

The Jesuit Jorge Mario Bergoglio (76) from Argentina, born in 1936 as the son of Italian immigrants, is the first Jesuit in the papal office and also the first non-European.
For the first time in history there is a Pope who comes from South America. And for the first time a member of the Jesuit order holds the highest ecclesiastical Office. Francis is the 266th consecutive Pope.

“My people are poor and I am one of them”, he has said more than once, explaining his decision to live in an apartment and cook his own supper.
