Jorge Mario Bergoglio (b. 1936) became Pope on March 13, 2013, elected on the fifth ballot by the conclave. Bergoglio was born in Argentina. He is the first Jesuit ever to become Pope.

Cardinal Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, has been an outspoken critic of homosexual adoption of children, explaining that it is discriminatory against the children.[1] Pope Francis is also strongly pro-life.

As a Jesuit, Cardinal Bergoglio rejected and opposed liberation theology in South America. The son of an Italian workman who emigrated to Argentina, Cardinal Bergoglio chose to carry the name of an Italian saint, "Francis", while serving as Pope.

Like St. Francis, Cardinal Bergoglio has an ascetic and humble lifestyle.
