I like this guy, he's got the real potential to be the best pope in centuries.

How refreshing and inspring. What would the world be like if our political leaders shared that same philosophy, genuineness and self-confidence.

The best leaders are invariably those who do not chose it themselves but rather are chosen by others.

I am not a fan of organized religion, but the more I hear about Pope Francis, the more I like him!

@roodoug, I agree. I'm not Catholic, but I have respect for someone who appears to be truly concerned with working to help the people who look up to him.

I am loving this Pope Francis. A real leader for real people? One who talks openly to children without prepared remarks? Love it!

Glad he changed his mind the bleeding that has embraced the Catholic church might slow down now. They may see the disappointed faith followers may come back to the church. I am not Catholic but when you see a simple person with seemingly a true love for the people then encourages hope.

One wonderful person verses thousands of Vatican bureaucrats. Unfortunately for Pope Francis, Daniel was given better odds in the lion's den.

I'm not Catholic. I'm not even Christian. (Agnostic.) But I'll pray for this man! A glimmer of light in the darkness.
