Pope Francis - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

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

Standing alone
Facing dark shadows
Taking blows
The Devil rains upon him.

With unwavering faith
God's shepherd of love
Caring for the poor
He is truly the peoples Pope.
