Like many people who meet Pope Francis I, a region priest says he was struck by the pontiff's humanity when the two met last month in Rome.
Pope Francis is the first pontiff to reach into the 13th century and choose the name of a humble Christian called St. Francis of Assisi. How significant for the Catholic Church and for Orthodox and Protestant Christians!
