Pope is a proper noun and, as such, is always capitalized -- Pope, not pope.

 

The word, in English, traces its roots to the Old English papa (9c.), in turn from Church Latin papa "bishop, pope" (in classical Latin, "tutor"), and originally from Greek papas "patriarch, bishop," originally "father." 

 

Pope can be used in a sentence in the same fashion to any name, title, or proper noun.

 

The Pope greeted the crowd following Mass on Sunday. The crowd responded to the Pope enthusiastically.

 

I hope this helps.
