Pope Francis Was A Nightclub Bouncer
In a Papal visit to a working class Roman parish, San Cirillo Alessandrino, Pope Francis revealed that as a young man, he worked as a bouncer at a night club in Buenos Aires. The revelation came while the Supreme Pontiff was recalling some the jobs he has held throughout his life, including sweeping floors, running test in a chemistry lab, and teaching literature and psychology. The recollection of the jobs he held was in response to a parishioner’s questions about her nephew, who was struggling to pay his debts before becoming a Franciscan.
Pope Francis guarding doors and administering admittance is not without Papal precedence; St. Peter has long held the keys to the Gates of Heaven.
