Cardinal Jorge Marion Bergoglio from Argentina is the first pope from Latin America in history, and he is the first non-European pope for almost 1,300 years. When he was an archbishop, he chooses to live in a simple apartment and travel by bus. He takes the name "Pope Francis" I.
The elected pope was a surprise choice to be a leader of 1.2 billion Catholics around the world, because of his age at 76, it is not an ideal age to become a pope, and replace the resigned Pope Benedict XVI and now he will face the controversy in Roman Catholic Church especially in clergy abuse that involves some Priest. "Pope Francis" will lead the worlds to be close to God.
