On March 13, 2013 a conclave of cardinals chose the Argentinian Jorge Mario Bergoglio to succeed Josef Ratzinger (Benedict XVI) as pope. The new leader asked to be called Francis after the “little poor man” of Assisi. He longed, he said, for a poor Church — to serve the poor. Almost immediately the new pope set about reforming the Vatican, vowed to confront and root out child abuse in the Catholic Church, raised his voice in support of climate activists and sought dialogue with other religions. On December 17 the reformer will be 85-years-old.

DW-TV looks back on what this pope has achieved in the last eight years: the opposition he has met with, and where he appears to have failed. We interview people close to him, his supporters and critics among the clergy, and Main Street Catholics — with their hopes and expectations of the “little poor man” in the Vatican.
