And It Gets Better

From the (Catholic) Millenial Blog:

Habemus Papam! And this new Pope we have is one who hails from the developing world, took public transportation to work, decided to live in a small apartment in Buenos Aires instead of the Archdiocesan palace, and cooked his own meals. A Pope who, when he was made a Cardinal, asked people from Argentina not to fly to Rome for the ceremony, but to instead donate the money to organizations working with those in material need. 
He has stood with the poor and marginalized throughout his ministry. John Allen reports, for instance, that he visited an HIV/AIDS hospice in 2001 and washed and kissed the feet of 12 AIDS patients.
