The pope is one of those titles that, in my opinion, make our society dwell in the past instead of moving forwards to the stars. I may get some heat for saying this, but I really think religion as a concept is what’s holding us back. Why am I telling you this? I need you to understand that even though I personally am not a religious person, I can’t help but feel the utmost respect for pope Francis’s worldview, what he did for this world, and his attitude towards people in general. Which basically is what Christianity is all about – don’t be a dick to people and do to others as you’d have them to do to you. It’s such an easy rule to follow, and yet, here we are – killing, raping, torturing, seriously considering Trump for the president. Bad humanity, bad!
Anyway, now that we’ve got all that covered, let’s get to the list itself, as I’m 99% sure you’ll love Pope Francis even more after this, and, hopefully, his actions will inspire you to do more good.
Here are but a few Francis’s firsts: he is the first Jesuit pope from the Americas, and the Southern Hemisphere, and the first non-European pope since the Syrian Gregory III in 741, which is a mind-blowing achievement on its own!
