Pope With A Common Touch Or A Sense Of Humor?
Newly elected Pope Francis gets called humble for riding the bus and cooking his own meals. I was watching the news on TV the other day and a story had surfaced that the Pope had called his paperboy to discontinue hies delivery. To no one’s surprise the boy didn’t believe that it was really the new Pope.
And now last week, the Pope once again demonstrated his common touch by making a phone call. This was apparently so unusual that a Vatican receptionist named Andreas who answered the call thought he was being pranked, snapping to his holiness, “Oh, yes? And I’m Napoleon.”
A patient pontiff explained that it was indeed Pope Francis on the line and could he please be connected to Adolfo Nicolas, the Superior General of the Jesuit order. A mortified Andreas then apologized profusely.
Personally I think he’s having fun.
