On the academic side, he has studied theology, philosophy, clinical psychology and psychotherapy. For more than ten years he also taught chemistry, physics, sacred music, moral theology and ecclesiology.

He has used his role to speak out in defense of the poor. So much so, that he must always be escorted in his native country for taking on drugs and corruption.

"The first value our continent has is faith, and with faith, the virtue of truth, which is not just optimism, but instead the confidence by which we must meet our goals and keep fighting. It's what sustains the poor. We have to keep fighting to get rid of poverty.”

What many don't know about him is that he loves to fly, and is certified as an aeronautical pilot. He is fluent in English, French, Italian, German and Portuguese, in addition to his native Spanish.

Cardinal Óscar Rodriguez Maradiaga is the current president of Caritas Internationalis, the Catholic Church's leading aid agency.
