Pope Francis has been one of the most intriguing Pope's to take a seat in the Vatican.
Catholics as well as non-Catholics are curious to know just who this defender of the voiceless is and why is he so fascinating. October 20, on the FOX Business Network, everyone will have a chance to find out.
New documentary Francis: The Pope From the New World traces the remarkable rise of Jorge Mario Bergoglio who has become the first pope from the Americas, the first pope who is a Jesuit, and the first to take the name Francis. The hour-long program features interviews from around the world, with close friends, fellow priests, co-workers, his biographer, and the poor of Buenos Aires.
"This documentary arrives as the world realizes that a very special man has assumed the leadership of the Catholic Church, and this begins -- but does not end -- with his gestures of humility and care for everyone," said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, one of the documentary's executive producers. "Still, what remain largely unknown to the public are many details of Pope Francis' life, the work he has done and the ways in which he has defended the voiceless and Catholic principles. This documentary delves into those stories."
The documentary will air Sunday, Oct. 20, at 5 p.m. Eastern Time on the FOX Business Network.
