We have seen the guards and the pomp and ceremony that accompany popes as they travel. But Pope Francis I apparently manages to sidestep that protocol and slip out of his residence and into the community. He moves among the poor, those who move through the streets in the dark of night.

“Love one another as I have loved you,” Jesus said.

Francis listened and continues to teach the Church what it means to love through simple, tangible actions.
