Pope Francis, a humble man, has huge challenge ahead

By Letters to the Editor

To the Editor:
What irony that the new pope chose the name of a sweet, humble, nonmaterialistic man who certainly would not have spent time hanging around the Vatican. St. Francis grew up in wealth but didn’t’ cherish it. His father locked him in the cellar for a month hoping he would change his values.
