A Photo Makes the Rounds:
Bergoglio’s 2006 “Encounter” with Adventist Teenager
“Cardinal” Jorge Bergoglio Leans on Shoulder of
16-Year-Old Seventh-Day Adventist at Ecumenical Gathering
It happened on June 29, 2006, at Luna Park Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina. “Cardinal” Jorge Bergoglio (now “Pope” Francis), the “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires at the time, was attending an ecumenical gathering with Protestants. The above photo was taken by Enrique Cangas, a photographer who is currently presenting 25 images of “Pope” Francis taken between 2003 and 2012, at an exhibit entitled Francis: Servant to Buenos Aires, Servant to the World. The young man on whose shoulder “Cardinal” Bergoglio is resting his head is Juan Francisco Taborda.
