Argentina Slum Pope_Rich.jpg

In this April 2000 photo courtesy of the Espinola family, Buenos Aires' Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio poses for photo with Angela Espinola, 12, left, and her sister Eliza, 9, during an Easter procession organized by the Virgin of Caacupe church in the Villa 21-24 slum in Buenos Aires, Argentina. For more than a billion Catholics worldwide, he's Pope Francis. For Argentina's poorest citizens, who crowd into the many so-called �misery villages� that surround the capital, he's proudly known as one of their own, a true �slum pope.� (AP Photo/Courtesy of the Espinola family)
