And welcome back to a spirited that they -- -- -- live here in Rome.
Talking about the Pope Francis this pay to see that is NB marked -- simplicity and humility.
And a person who can really tell us and give some perspective.
On what that really is going to mean is John Lewis is the realm of bureau chief of that -- and thank you so much support coming on the show you have such a history.
With the Vatican and you know so many of the styles of these of the holy father's.
What is your take on where were.
And video now with offenses.
I think we're gonna get I have one of the most human -- -- -- gets imaginable.
I CE -- list in what is it now about 48 hours that he has been home.
And most people to have the impression beginning with the -- -- coming out on the balcony just like a friend.
People have the impression that people could have had him over percent of French.
And can't talk to him about their -- That he's had that kind of relationship we think people -- in Argentina.
And I think he's gonna bring that style he said simplicity and humility.
To the whole world.
Let's get -- because he's he appears in the white castle just about why call the other -- but there's some really big differences to go through those.
Differences that you saw first of -- balcony.
Well first -- that the very first thing that strikes you someone like myself hadn't seen other popes come out and the falcons was the simplicity of his dress and he.
That he came -- back white castle he had go light -- -- for me you know like -- And and an apparently there was other dress that had been laid out for him to Wear and he simply wanted to be addressed more simple -- so far.
Has been an -- they did put the -- him the very ornate stole because.
There are certain locations liturgical otherwise it requires certain dress so he did headed -- and -- that and they kind of helped himself to get off.
I I think a lot of the trappings the -- Benedict was known for being a beautiful dresses men and I don't relish no -- Tuesday.
The exactly that that the that the audience he wore black shoes wolf -- negative two reasons for that age.
They did know it was going to be so they did mention its use it should make it's like 400 feet -- -- -- -- -- Peter's square.
And -- did walk or he has simply said that he wants to continue wearing his comfortable -- Benedict gone back issues made in Mexico.
-- very comfortable brown leather shoes given to him -- on Mexico.
And no money.
And -- I think -- he went back on the bus didn't -- -- to be special People Magazine he's been.
He -- in the Santa Marta I mean he's not doing people things no -- isn't just because the color of his assessments have changed.
On the net he has not changed either interior early or exterior you really except for the white.
And one of the best pictures I'm sure it's gone around the world by now.
Is the holy father.
When he went after going to south Santa Maria and I -- yesterday he went to the casa de Janeiro.
-- -- -- golf and he he walked did the wonderful picture of him on the front counter of this you know hotel.
Paying his bill.
And so and I -- kinda wonder -- -- front desk next to him.
I -- the holy father and like nobody warned him.
Yeah they just won't listen I have to go payment if you take care that now we had to get his luggage to.
Oh -- people for that but just yet like he doesn't it I mean he made his own meals.
In Argentina he did take -- bus and then he -- out a couple years -- the priority -- important the day before he became a cardinal asked to speak to a group of students.
At the University of Dallas at -- around campus which is very near castle Gandolfo.
And on the took the bus -- okay this is the cardinal to be took the bus there.
And then after his talk this staff why did as they did with all -- -- to take him to dinner.
And he said -- -- system and yes desperately -- -- with the students.
Add this to have said oh my -- punish the student society had their dinner.
And so they really you know you're and it has to be let it take you out.
And he -- he they -- the -- And he looked and then he said what's -- the -- -- -- wet and they made a bowl of spaghetti and headed in the kitchen.
Well let me win at a couple of -- are coming in -- -- -- talks about does she love the picture of him in the bus.
And -- he says I hope this Pope lives up to Saint Francis.
It sounds like he is going to.
Won't and it did choosing of the name of Francis.
And you're right in saying he's the first Francis.
But he's not -- the first and he would never be until there was apprentice the second.
That was a choice he made because I'm John Paul actually took the first.
Posted the first putt for this reason.
John Paul the first went to sign a document and no fastball and -- isn't the number one.
And one of his advisors came over and take your holiness.
You don't do that you don't need number one.
And and John Paul first look at his surprising that there's going to be John -- to.
And and -- take weeks later.
