Pope Overview

The Pope is the bishop of Rome and the leader of the Roman Catholic Church, the largest Christian church in the world. The Pope is considered to be the spiritual leader of over 1.2 billion Roman Catholics worldwide, and his teachings and decisions carry significant weight and influence within the church.

The Pope’s official title is “Bishop of Rome, Vicar of Jesus Christ, Successor of the Prince of the Apostles, Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church, Primate of Italy, Archbishop and Metropolitan of the Roman Province, Sovereign of the State of Vatican City.” As the head of the Catholic Church, the Pope is responsible for overseeing the administration of the church, making decisions about its teachings and practices, and serving as a representative for the Catholic community around the world.

The Pope is elected by the College of Cardinals, a group of high-ranking Catholic leaders, following the death or resignation of a previous Pope. The election process is secret and is guided by a set of procedures established by the church. The Pope serves for life, and his authority and leadership are considered to be divinely inspired.

The current Pope is Pope Francis, who was elected in 2013. He is the first Pope from the Americas and is known for his progressive views and emphasis on social justice issues.
