A few days ago, the Vatican announced that Pope Francis will become the first Catholic pope in over two millennia to be married.
He will marry the sister of the late Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who died on Jan. 6.
The announcement came on the heels of the death of Cardinal Marc Ouellet, who had been pope since March 2009.
The Vatican said he was dying of a heart attack.
Cardinal Joseph RatZinger is the last surviving Vatican leader to be elected Pope.
He died on Feb. 12.
Pope Francis has been the most popular Catholic leader in the world since his election in 2013, winning nearly half the votes cast for the 2020 presidential election.
He’s made his mark as a leader on climate change, gender equality, family issues, and social justice.
The Vatican has been plagued with corruption scandals and scandals involving its finances.
In February 2018, Cardinal Peter Turkson resigned as head of the Vatican Bank.
He was convicted in a Swiss court and fined $8.4 million.
Turkey was also convicted of corruption charges in 2015, and was sentenced to three years in prison.
