I presume everyone has heard that the pope told his flock in Argentina to stay home and give their air fare money to the poor. But did you hear that his shoes were so shabby that, before he left for Rome, friends bought him a new pair? It reminded me of "Fr. Baby Doe," Fr. Norman Weslin who wore both a shabby cassock and shoes held together with duct tape. I like this man's simplicity. Francis is a good name for him.
And now for a little humor.
