What`s special about Papa Franciscus?

Pope Francis is the 266th and current pope of the Catholic Church. He was elected on 13th March 2013 at the age of 76. His birth name is Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Born on 17 December 1936, Flores, a district of Buenos Aires, Pope Francis belongs to the zodiac sign Sagittarius with ruling element fire. Jupiter rules the luck of Sagittarian born natives.

Being a Sagittarius Pope Francis is bold, knowledgeable, philosophical and spirited. It’s a bit difficult to keep pace with him, whether it is in his movement or in his speech. He likes to be free as the wind that blows, quite uncaring of the effect he may have on his surroundings.

Pope Francis was named Auxiliary bishop of Buenos Aires in 1992 and then on 27th June 1992 as Titular Bishop of Auca. After becoming the Pope, on 16th March 2013, he told journalists that he had chosen the name “Francis” in honor of ‘Saint Francis of Assisi’ and had done so because he is especially concerned for the well-being of the poor.

Whether it’s the Eastern Orthodox communities, Oriental Orthodox community, Mainline Protestant community, Evangelical Protestant community, Jewish community or the Islamic community, Pope Francis’ relations are excellent and Bergoglio has talked about his commitment to open and respectful interfaith dialogue as a way for all parties engaged in that dialogue to learn from one another.

He wrote many books on random social topics.
