DID YOU KNOW POPE FRANCIS HAS ONE LUNG AND USED BE CLUB BOUNCER!!? THIS ARE SOME OF THE 9 THINGS ABOUT HIM YOU DID NOT KNOW THAT WILL LEAVE YOU STUNNED

6. He is fluent in four languages, but English is not one of them

Pope Francis is fluent in his native Spanish, Italian, German, and Latin, the official language of the Vatican. He has also addressed crowds in clear but heavily accented English, French, Portuguese and Ukrainian. It is therefore likely that he will make most of his addresses in English while in Kenya and maybe occasionally have a translator.


7. He stays at Vatican guesthouse

After he became Pope Francis, he refused to move into the luxurious and spacious papal apartments and opted to stay in the Vatican guesthouse where he stayed during the 2013 conclave that saw him elected as pope. He has always stressed that he wants a poor church for the poor and urges priests to live simpler lives, perhaps an explanation why he relinquished the papal apartments.
