He did not go into details about his career as a bouncer or what experiences it had brought to his current job as head of the Roman Catholic Church.

Instead, he talked about how his work later in life, teaching literature and psychology, “taught him how to get people back into the church”, the paper reported.

Francis said he discovered his vocation to the clergy after confession with a priest he had never met before.
