Newly named Pope Francis, aka Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina, is known for being humble and rejecting an ostentatious lifestyle.A report from his life in Buenos Aires lends credence to that reputation: According to the National Catholic Register (via the Washington Post), Bergoglio “gave up his chauffeured limousine in favour of taking the bus to work.”
