Pope francis

There was a time when Pope Francis couldn't turn the other cheek: He once worked as a bouncer at a Buenos Aires nightclub, he told parishioners at a local church in Rome on Sunday.

It marked the first time the pontiff discussed his doorman gig since becoming pope, NBC's "Today" reports.

The Catholic leader was listing some of his former jobs, which included teaching and chemistry lab work, during a visit to San Cirillo Alessandrino church, as reported by Catholic News Service. But it was his mention of being a bar enforcer that caught the attention of many.

New York Magazine humorously imagined a conversation between a bar owner angry at the future pontiff's lax admission standards. "I'm seeing a lot of poorly dressed losers in here. Also a number of lepers," complains the boss, who eventually fires him.

The pope worked the velvet rope to make money when he was a student, the Telegraph reported several months ago, but his public recollection on Sunday still caught many by surprise.

We wish we could've heard it from the pontiff himself.
