“Pope Francis: Style and substance.”
“The trip [to Brazil] underlined Francis’ image of a ‘barefoot pope’ who lives in a hostel, not papal apartments, cares for the poor and is endowed with a human warmth… People sense hypocrisy and pomposity; they also sense the opposite.”
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” (Isaiah 52:7 NIV)
How beautiful indeed – a fresh wind is blowing!
