About the Author
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on December 17, 1936, Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis on March 13, 2013, when he was named the 266th pope of the Roman Catholic Church. Bergoglio, the first pope from the Americas, reportedly took his papal title after St. Francis of Assisi of Italy. Prior to his election as pope, Bergoglio served as archbishop of Buenos Aires from 1998 to 2013 (succeeding Antonio Quarracino), as cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church of Argentina from 2001 to 2013, and as president of the Bishops Conference of Argentina from 2005 to 2011.

This extended interview is both informative and inspiring. It articulates the thinking which underpins the behaviour of Pope Francis, with its many moving and symbolic actions. It puts in context his life as a Jesuit, as a religious superior who had to learn from his mistakes, and as 'the archbishop of the slums'. It gives great encouragement to all those who want to work collaboratively in the church: 'When we work together,' he says, 'the Holy Spirit will assist us'. This interview rekindles the spark of excitement once generated by Pope John XXIII and the Second Vatican Council fifty years ago.
