This is the story of Pope Francis – his childhood in Argentina, his work as a priest and his life as pope. Pope Francis cares for the homeless and has a special place in his heart for the poor. He also loves football, music and tango!
Although Pope Francis is a very busy man, he always has time for other people, and he especially has time for God. He teaches us how to live like Jesus by praying, by caring for others and by enjoying God’s world!
