It's not exactly the job you'd see on the resume of the leader of the Catholic Church, but Pope Francis revealed he used to work as a bouncer.

That's according to the Vatican's newspaper.

He told a tour group that he worked as a bouncer at a Buenos Aires bar in his younger days.

Pope Francis says the experience has helped him immensely.

He mastered the skills of throwing people out, but these day he says it's all about inviting people into church.
