Born in Buenos Aires as the son of Italian parents, Bergoglio worked briefly as a chemical technician and nightclub bouncer before entering seminary. He was ordained a priest in 1969. From 1973 to 1979 he was Argentina's Provincial superior of the Society of Jesus. He became Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998, and a cardinal in 2001. Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI in February 2013, the papal conclave elected Bergoglio on 13 March 2013, who chose the papal name Francis in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi. Francis is the first Jesuit pope, the first pope from the Americas, the first from the Southern Hemisphere and the first non-European Pope since Pope Gregory III, 1272 years earlier.
With this app you can celebrate his papacy thru a variety of brilliantly colored high definition wallpapers / backgrounds. Enjoy.
