If you have been following the news lately (and even if you haven’t), you probable know that Pope Francis, who is the 266th and current Pope of the Catholic Church, has recently visited the United States. Some people are extremely excited about his arrival, while others are indifferent and then some think it’s not necessarily a good thing. However, there’s no denying that Pope Francis’ arrival has definitely caused a wave of excitement, and that his working with President Obama to better the conditions of people across the world could prove to be beneficial for many.

As with any religious leader, it helps to know that the Pope is a “real guy” with human tendencies and interests. Yes, he has a prominent position, but his leadership will likely be more effective when the people who follow him are able to relate to him. Even if you keep up with the Pope’s travels and activities, there may still be some things you don’t know about him. The more interesting he is to the general public, the greater his chances may be of affecting even more change in the world.

Yes, Pope Francis had a girlfriend. The guy who is not supposed to have a romantic relationship, since his devotion should be to his “flock” (congregation), remembers a time when he had his eye on someone special. He explains to Rubin and Ambrogetti that the young woman was in his tango dancing group. Apparently, the relationship only lasted a short time, since the future Pope broke up with her once he realized his calling. While Pope Francis went on to fulfill his religious mission of becoming the leader of the Catholic church, this brief look into his history indicates that he knows and appreciates the value of romantic love.
