I have previously said that I find the work (and lifestyle) of Pope Francis to be inspiring. However, that bond became only stronger yesterday when it was revealed that the Pope once worked as a bar bouncer. It appears that, before laying hands on the faithful, Pope Francis would lay hands on the boozeful. He just gets cooler and cooler by the day.
In his discussions, the Pope had an interesting exchange with a woman who asked how she should pray for one of her relatives who was going to become a Franciscan friar. Pope Francis responded that she should pray that the man would have “the perseverance to go forward, but also the courage to turn back if he understands that this is not the right path.” In matters of a church or a bar, it seems you need to know when you have had enough.
