Mi Papa favorito..!
The Top 5 Reasons Pope Francis Is My Favorite Person
1. He knows eight different languages!
That’s seven more than I’ll ever know! He knows how to speak Spanish, Latin, and Italian. But he also understands English, French, German, Ukrainian, and Portuguese!
2. He made a Trip to The U.S.
If you didn’t hear all the buzz about Pope Francis coming to America, then you were probably hiding under a rock all weekend. But it’s true! He was here, and it was a BIG deal! People from all over the country traveled to see him in Washington D.C.
3. He is super humble!
He chose his papal name due to the humility associated with St. Francis of Assisi, and he really lives up to his reputation. When he was the Archbishop of Buenos Aires, he lived in a simple apartment with few luxuries and either rode the bus or walked around town. When he was elected as the Pope, he flew to Rome in the economy class.
4. He’s basically done it all.
Before he became a Jesuit, Pope Francis worked as a bouncer in a Buenos Aries club and bar to help pay for school. I mean, it doesn’t get any cooler than that.
5. He has a Twitter!
We need someone to remind us to go to mass and pray from time to time! I think that any Pope with a twitter account wins the “coolest pope” award, hands down. In 2013, Time Magazine named him Person of the Year,” a prestigious title given to the one who “has done the most to influence the events of the year.”
