Read this Message from Pope Francis

Pope Francis with birth name Jorge Mario Bergoglio born 17th December, 1936 is the sovereign of the Vatican City State, he is as the bishop of Rome and the head of the Catholic Church worldwide.

Francis is the first pope from outside Europe since the Syrian Gregory III, who reigned in the 8th century, the first Jesuit pope, the first from the Americas, the first from the Southern Hemisphere who has shown concern in propagation of the word of God.

Pope Francis was ordained on 13th December 1969, consecrated on 27th June 1992. He hails from Argentina and began papacy on 13th march 2013.

Due to the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI on 28th February 2013, a papal conclave elected Bergoglio (Pope Francis) as his successor where he began papacy. 

Francis was selected as his papal name in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi and all through Pope Francis public life, he has been pinpointed for his concern for the poor and commitment to interreligious dialogue, humility, international visibility as pope and emphasis on God's mercy.

I came across this message from one of his social media handles where he said:

"Too often, women are insulted, beaten, raped, forced to prostitute themselves. If we want a better world that will be a peaceful home and not a battlefield, we all need to do a lot more for the dignity of each woman".
