Pope Francis celebrates 60 years since discovering his vocation as priest

2013-09-20

It was September 21, 1953 and Jorge Mario Bergoglio was 17 years old. That day, at a church in the Flores neighborhood of Buenos Aires, he heard Gods calling to become a priest. Now, as the leader of the Catholic Church, he will celebrate sixty years since he discovered his priestly vocation.

He entered the Buenos Aires seminary and a few years later, became a Jesuit. But he clearly recalls the moment that forever changed his life:  the conversation he had with an unknown priest who heard his confession at the Church of San Jose decades ago.

Now, the complete story of Pope Francis can be seen in a new ROME REPORTS documentary: Francis, The Peoples Pope. It narrates his life story from his early childhood, up until his election as the leader of Catholicism.
