The then archbishop of Buenos Aires, Jorge Bergoglio, elected on March 15, 2013 as Pope Francis, performs the footh bath ceremony in Buenos Aires, on March 24, 2005. Argentina's Jorge Bergoglio, chosen Wednesday to lead the world's Roman Catholics, is a humble rail worker's son who became a Jesuit priest and who is seen as true to his working-class roots.
At 76, Bergoglio -- the first pope from Latin America -- still enjoys a reputation as an ascetic despite his archbishop's robes. He rides clattering city buses, makes his own meals and is famously accessible. AFP PHOTO/NA/DANIEL VIDES ARGENTINA OUT (Photo credit should read DANIEL VIDES/AFP/Getty Images)
