Early photographs of Father Bergoglio

Jorge Mario Bergoglio SJ was ordained priest just a few days before his 33rd birthday in December 1969. This was two weeks after the introduction of the New Order of Mass, the Missale Romanum of Paul VI.  

Adjacent are two photographs of the young Father Bergoglio during Mass.  His vestments are very simple, but certainly tasteful.
