The pope, who is 75, has been a constant fixture on the papal calendar.
His life, and life in general, is a testament to his faith, and his devotion to the church.
It is a journey that has taken him through many, many years, from a small town boy who attended Catholic schools to a man with a global reputation, a pontiff who has the world watching.
A history of the world Francis grew up inThe first papal visit to the United States was in 1959, when Pope John XXIII visited the White House to meet with the president.
He is not the first pope to visit the U.S., and not the only pope to do so.
But his first visit to America was the first time the papacy has been visited by a pope.
He also was the only man to be born in the U and have a second Catholic parents.
He was the third pope to lead a papacy in the Americas, following his predecessor, Benedict XVI.
Pope Francis grew to be the youngest pope ever when he was born on June 25, 1951.
He attended St. Peter’s Seminary in Rome, which is considered a Jesuit school.
He joined the Jesuit Order at age 17 and became a cardinal at age 19.
The first time Francis met with the popeThe first pope in history to meet the pope in person was in 1962, when the pope visited the Vatican to meet Pope John Paul II.
Francis attended the Vatican’s first Mass, at which he spoke about the church and about the Holy Spirit.
Francis was baptized on January 14, 1963, and is still in the Roman Catholic Church, which he joined in 1968.
The papacy began to change in the late 1980s, when Benedict XVI resigned.
Francis and other cardinals decided that the time had come to change the way the church teaches and acts.
Francis became the first pontiff to hold a directorship, or highest office, in the Vatican.
In 2014, he became the fourth pope to be elected by cardinals.
Francis became pope in 2015The pontiff has a reputation for humility, but also for his charisma and his humility have earned him a wide following in the church, where he has become known for his strong personality and the way he treats people.
Francises popularity is fueled by the fact that he has never married, and that he does not have a son.
But he is still married to the first woman to hold the papate, Sister Cecilia Scola.
He has two children, sons and daughters-in-law.
The pontiffs biggest achievement is his ability to make the church more accessible to a broader audience than it has ever been.
Pope Francis has given a voice to the voiceless, and he has shown that the church can still reach out to the world.
He continues to make a difference in the lives of the poor, who are often overlooked by the mainstream media.
