Pope Francis — New York City Visit Commemorative Coin
The son of Italian immigrants, Jorge Mario Bergoglio earned a master's degree in chemistry before finding his true calling and turning to religious studies at the age of 21. After joining the Societyof Jesus and entering the priesthood, Father Jorge taught for most of his early career, quickly rising through the ranks of the church to become Archbishop of Buenos Aires. Dedicating himself to intellectual pursuits, missionary efforts, and ending cultural indifference, Bergoglio took a vow of poverty, rejecting the generous lifestyle afforded a cardinal of the Church. Instead, he rode the bus, lived in a simple apartment, and cooked his own meals. When Pope Benedict XVI resigned in 2013, Bergoglio was elected the 266th Pope of the Catholic Church and chose the name Francis in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, who was known for rebuilding the church and focusing on the poor. In the short time that Pope Francis has served as pontiff, he has been celebrated for his modesty and genuine affection for all—as well as his pragmatic approach to the Church's stance on today's issues—and has become immensely popular all over the world.
