Why Does Pope Francis Never Smile?

After the last papal conclave in 2005, it was jokingly reported that Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio never smiled. Now that he is our 266th Pope, let's look at some of the reasons why we never see Pope Francis smile. #pope #smile

1. Because in 2005 he lost (was first-runner up) the catholic equivalent of Miss Universe to Benedict XVI, and when Benedict couldn't fulfill the duties of his crown (mitre) he had to go through another grueling election process and we all know how stress

When Argentina passed same-sex marriage, it was an abominable to his catholic morals and then it made him the first elected pope from a country where same-sex marriage is legal.

Although he is the first pope in a very very long time to not be from Europe, he is still sneakily of %100 European decent. His parents were Italian immigrants.

Ok, so he doesn't smile much. But when he became Pope, he did! It was documented for the world to see, and it's adorable!

"Hehehe...little do they know, I'm going to sing 'Don't Cry for me Argentina' on the balcony next..."
