A Vatican newspaper has reported that Pope Francis revealed to a group of parishioners that he once worked as a bouncer at a club.

The newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, said Pope Francis talked about his past during a visit to parish church San Cirillo Alessandrino in Rome.

The pope's earlier day jobs also included sweeping floors and running laboratory tests, according to a report from the Catholic News Service.

The pope revealed that like most students, who wanted some money during their university days, he needed to make a little cash on the side. So he worked at a bar in Buenos Aires and did some moonlighting as a bouncer.

But all this was before he saw the light and chose the priesthood--entering the seminary in Villa Devoto, the report stated.
