The charismatic Pope Francis paid a historic visit to the U.S. last week for the first time since he’s held office and people reacted with a case of Popemania. Although El Papa is the reigning leader of the Catholic Church and I do not consider myself very religious, rather culturally Catholic, I cannot help but feel an affinity to this Pope’s outspoken and unapologetic beliefs, deemed “radical” by some critics. And I am not alone. He is wildly popular. In his short 2+ years as head of the Papacy, he’s garnered plenty of attention, both positive and negative, but it’s undeniable that he’s injecting fresh energy to a very stale and dull institution.
