It marked the first time the pontif discussed his doorman gig since becoming pope, NBC’s “Today” reports.
The Catholic leader was listing some of his former jobs, which included teaching and chemistry lab work, during a visit to San Cirillio Alessandrino church, as reported by Catholic News Service. But it was his mention of being a bar enforcer that caught the attention of many.
New York Magazine humorously imagined a conversation between a bar owner angry at the future pontiff’s lax admission standards. “I’m seeing a lot of poorly dressed losers in here. Also a number of lepers,” complains the boss, who eventually fires him.
