Shoes and clues of the fisherman

Pope Francis, the new incumbent in the line of St Peter the fisherman, seems an interesting fellow. He sneaks out of the Vatican after being made Pope to pay the bill at the hotel where he was staying pre-election; his shoes are well worn; he shuns pomp and excess, he used to ride the subway to work in Buenos Aires. And in this translation of brief excerpts from his book, he speaks of the big issues of the day. I hope that these images are the truth about the man.
