This pope is the real deal, teaching Christians how to actually be christian again.

I'm not religious in the least, I was raise a Lutheran and I walked away from the church 30 years ago. Pope Francis has moved me, he is a great man! The Catholic church will grow under his leadership.

He may just inspire me to return to the Catholic church, defying every reason I had for leaving.

I'm a Christian, not Roman Catholic, but I'm becoming increasingly impressed with this man, especially his humility, and his desire like other Christians, to be a servant of Christ and not just some regal authority.

I am curious how the Catholic League's Bill Donohue feels about Pope Francis.

Yeah brocklander1, thank God it's a "slow news day" as we need more stories like this to lift our spirits and help us feel like strong and moral leaders are still out there.

What struck me is his comment of taking care of the poor and the weak. Its always been implied, but with this guy it resonates more profoundly. This guy is the real deal.
