Keeping with his Latin roots, it shouldn’t be a surprise to hear that Pope Francis is a lover of the tango. In his youth, he was known for dancing the tango often and in 2010 commented that the tango “comes from deep within me.”

Catholics seem to love Pope Francis’s tango obsession. To celebrate his 78th birthday in 2014, tango enthusiasts danced for him in front of the Vatican in St. Peter’s Square.
