POPE FRANCIS


Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected Pope on 13th March 2013.
Born December 1936 in Buenos Aires of Italian descent, he is
known for his humility and love of the poor. He is a Jesuit and
first Pope from the Americas.

He stands alone
Facing shadows of the day
Taking fierce blows
The Devil rains upon him.

Loving, with unwavering faith
Giving his soul to God and the Madonna
With prayers and sacrifice for the poor
And is truly the peoples Pope.
