For the seven and a half decades before he was known as Pope Francis, he was known as Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
And he used to be a kid, just like everyone else. Who knows if one of the kids you meet today might become Pope someday!
1) With his brother Oscar
2) As a young boy
3) He attended a Don Bosco school
4) Another one from school
5) 12 years old, studying chemistry at Salesian College (he’s the boy in the middle)
BONUS: Then he got all grown up and ordained!
