Pope Francis
POPE FRANCIS is the first Latin American to be elected to the chair of Peter. Born Jorge Mario Bergoglio in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he was ordained as a priest in 1969. He served as head of the Society of Jesus in Argentina from 1973 to 1979. In 1998 he became the archbishop of Buenos Aires, and in 2001 a cardinal. Following the resignation of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI, on February 28, 2013, the conclave elected Bergoglio, who chose the papal name Francis in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi.
Hernán Reyes Alcaide (Buenos Aires, 1983) is senior correspondent in Rome  for the national Argentinian press agency Télam. In 2017 he published Latinoamérica (Planeta), the first ever book of conversations between a Pope and a South American journalist, that was acknowledged as a work of special interest by the Mercosur Parliament and by the Buenos Aires legislature.
