BACKGROUND AND HISTORY
Pope Francis Pope Francis in Latin Franciscus was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in 17 December 1936. He is the 266th pope of the Catholic Church, elected by the Papal conclave on 13 March 2013. A native of Buenos Aires, Argentina, he was ordained as a priest in 1969. In 1998 he became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, and in 2001 a cardinal. He was elected pope following the resignation of his predecessor Pope Benedict XVI on 28 February 2013. Bergoglio chose the name Francis (the first time a pope has taken that name) in honour of Saint Francis of Assisi. He is both the first Jesuit pope and the first pope from the Americas. He is also the first pope from outside Europe since Gregory III in the 8th century.
