Jorge Mario Bergoglio was born in Flores, Buenos Aires, Argentina, on December 17, 1936, to an Italian immigrant father and an Argentinian mother. He graduated high school with a diploma in chemical technology and at age twenty-two, during a severe case of pneumonia, had part of one lung removed. Once fully recovered, he decided to devote himself to the priesthood and joined the Jesuits as a novice. After ten years of study, he was ordained a priest in 1969. In 1973, he became the regional leader for the worldwide Jesuit order. In 1992, Father Jorge, as he preferred to be called, was appointed Auxiliary Bishop in Buenos Aires, and he became Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998. Pope John Paul II appointed Bergoglio Cardinal in 2001. Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, the Conclave met to elect a new pope. On March 13, 2013, after two days and five ballots, they elected Bergoglio, who became Pope Francis I.

Quotations from "Pope Francis in His Own Words" "The person who is most high among us must be at the service of the others."-- "Pope Francis, as he washed, dried, and kissed the feet of young prisoners on his first Holy Thursday as pontiff""We never lose if we imitate Jesus, if we serve our suffering brothers.""To recognize, accept, and live with all ways of thinking and being does not imply the renunciation of one's own beliefs.""A little bit of mercy makes the world less cold and more just.""In a society where lies, cover-ups, and hypocrisy have caused people to lose basic trust in the social contract, what could be more revolutionary than the truth?""Human history, our history, the history of every one of us is never 'finished'; it never runs out of possibilities. Rather, it is always opening to the new -- to what, until now, we'd never even had in mind. To what seemed impossible."
