Overview

Primer Papa Jesuita. Primer Papa Latinoamericano. Un hombre que eligio como su primer acto una simple peticion: por favor oren por mi. La reciente dimision del Papa Benedicto XVI tomo al mundo por sorpresa y por buenas razones. Mas de 600 aos han pasado desde que un Papa renuncio a su cargo. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, ahora Papa Francisco, es un hombre de oracion, un hombre de accion y un hombre humilde que siempre ha promovido a otros sobre si mismo. El fue quien en 2005 renuncio al papado, para facilitar el ascenso de Benedicto XVI. Sin embargo, el nuevo Papa enfrenta a una iglesia catolica en crisis -una iglesia que ha perdido la atraccion de los medios de comunicacion de Juan Pablo II y es acosada por los escandalos de pedofilia. Su primer ao puede no ser facil, pero ni este hombre ni la Iglesia han eludido los retos que se les han impuesto. El Papa Francisco es un hombre sencillo pero con una amplia formacion teologica. Es un hombre de su tiempo, pero uno que tambien viaja en metro y autobus al igual que cualquier otro ciudadano. Ha llegado por fin la primavera despues de este invierno tan largo?

More than 600 years had passed since a pope last left his post. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now Pope Francis, is a man of prayer, a man of action and a humble man who has always promoted others over himself. In fact, it was Bergoglio who bowed out of the running in the papal election of 2005 to facilitate the rise of Benedict XVI. However, the new pope faces a Catholic Church in crisis-a church that has lost the media pull of John Paul II and is still hounded by pedophile scandals and the filtration of documents from former papal administrations. His first year may not be an easy one but neither this man nor the church itself has ever shied away from the challenges thrust upon them. Pope Francis is austere and simple but has vast theological training. He is a man of his time but one who also travels by subway and bus just like any other citizen. Tirelessly fighting poverty and marginalization, he is a beacon of hope for the poor, persecuted sectors of the
