Who’s calling, please?

Seems Pope Francis I likes to communicate via the telephone. Really! The pope has picked up the phone – without staff assistance – and called people to offer comfort, thanks or perhaps simply to chat.

If your caller ID comes up with Vatican City attached to an unknown number, you just may want to answer the call. Francis did.
