In a surprise revelation, Pope Francis shared he used to be a night club bouncer in his younger years.

The pontiff was visiting a church outside of Rome, speaking about his past careers when he shared the news. He said he was a bouncer at a Buenos Aires club during college.

Pope Francis also said his work later in life -- teaching literature and psychology -- taught him how to get people back into the Catholic church.
