    Blessed are the Poor in Spirit.He may be burdened with external trappings of material things, but he does have a spirit like St. Francis.

    Clothes (or fancy chairs) do not necessarily make the man. Glad he understands that.

    The people make the church…Francis shows that the people are the most important thing to God, not the possessions/material things they have.

    Another point to ponder: “The church should ‘look Catholic’. In other words, it should proclaim by its distinctiveness that it is not just an auditorium or a non Catholic place of worship. This is because we proclaim our Catholic faith with confidence and joy. A church building that ‘looks Catholic’ helps to do that.”

    His “humble” plain robes were custom tailored of silk and velvet and the Vatican will not disclose what they cost. Even his shoes are hand-made:

    Don’t let the “look how humble I am” act fool you.
