Rorate has a post up about Pope Francis calling a group of nuns and leaving the following message on their phone:
"What are the nuns doing that they can't answer [the phone]? I am Pope Francis, I wish to greet you in this end of the year, I will see if I can call you later. May God bless you!"ah?
Am I supposed to think this is disconcerting or odd?
The Pope makes his own phone calls and is playful with people.
I absolutely love this about him.
If it is one thing I don't miss, it's the crackpot clerlicalism that turned a human being into a stilted and unreachable robot.
I don't miss that!
