A Pope who shows us God’s style

"As we celebrate 10 years of Pope Francis, our minds go back to the evening of March 13, 2013, when he first appeared on the balcony of Saint Peter’s Basilica. He was dressed in the simple white cassock, without much of the regalia that popes have usually donned. His first words to us were “Dear brothers and sisters, good evening!” He went on to say that this time the cardinals had chosen a pope “almost from the ends of the earth” – the first pope from the new world. And before giving us his first blessing as pope, he asked us to pray for him, to bless him so that he could bless us."
