If Saint Peter ever needs help at the pearly gates, his successor -- Pope Francis -- may be the perfect man for the job.
It turns out the popular Pontiff was once a bouncer at a nightclub in his native Argentina.
Francis shared that interesting tidbit to Catholics at a church outside Rome earlier this week.
He also said his career has included sweeping floors and running tests in a chemical lab.
The revelations are sure to boost his image as a "Pope of the people."
There's no word from the Vatican on whether Francis ever had to get physical with unruly bar patrons.
