The world is already referring to Pope Francis as the coolest and most progressive pope of all time (remember when he denounced the church’s obsession with abortion and gay marriage), but there may be evidence that he’s also a super-hero.
According to sources who spoke with the Huffington Post, the pope dresses up at night all Batman or Superman-esque and leaves the Vatican to save the souls of homeless people.
A recent interview with Archbishop Konrad Krajewski, the “Almoner of His Holiness,” raised speculation that the Pope joins him on his nightly trips into Rome to give alms to the poor, and it turns out that the rumors are probably true.
A knowledgable source in Rome told The Huffington Post that “Swiss guards confirmed that the pope has ventured out at night, dressed as a regular priest, to meet with homeless men and women.”
Krajewski earlier said, “When I say to him ‘I’m going out into the city this evening’, there’s the constant risk that he will come with me,” and he merely smiled and ducked the question when reporters asked him point-blank whether the Pope accompanied him into the city.
But this is nothing new to Pope Francis, formerly known as Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio. Back in the day, he was known to sneak out at night to break bread with the homeless, sitting with them on the street and eating with them to show that they were loved.
How could you not adore this guy?
