Pope Francis has revealed he once made money by kicking people out of clubs as a bouncer.

During a visit to a parish church in Rome at the weekend, Pope Francis got chatty about his credentials.

According to news.com.au, the Vatican newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, reported that the pope told a group of parishioners at the church of San Cirillo Alessandrino about his earlier jobs.

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

Pope revealed that like most students, who want some money during their university days, he needed to make a little cash on the side.

So he worked in a bar in Buenos Aires and did some moonlighting as a bouncer.

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

On March 11, 1958 he joined the novitiate of the Society of Jesus, or the Jesuits.

The rest is history.
