Pope Francis’ body measurements are all here! Check out his height, weight, shoe size and more!
The 266th Pope of the Catholic Church who took over for Benedict XVI in March of 2013. He made waves throughout the world for his modern views on homosexuality and contraception.
Ordained a priest in 1969, he rose through the ranks to become Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998 and cardinal in 2001.
In contrast to his predecessor’s somewhat aloof style, he showed himself to be a people of the people, often mingling with the faithful.
He was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the eldest of five children of Italian immigrants.
It was Pope John Paul II who elevated him to the post of Cardinal in 2001.

Every man, every woman who has to take up the service of government, must ask themselves two questions: ‘Do I love my people in order to serve them better? Am I humble and do I listen to everybody, to diverse opinions in order to choose the best path?’ If you don’t ask those questions, your governance will not be good.
I see the church as a field hospital after battle. It is useless to ask a seriously injured person if he has high cholesterol and about the level of his blood sugars. You have to heal his wounds. Then we can talk about everything else.
I sincerely hope I can contribute to the progress there has been in relations between Jews and Catholics since the Second Vatican Council in a spirit of renewed collaboration.
