2013-03-17

"Words of freedom, of hope-that's what we want. It's what we need.”

"He seems to be a very kind man, very simple, kind and decent. I think he will do a very good job.”

"He has taken all of us by surprise, by his simplicity and also by his closeness to the poor. Long live the Pope.”

His simple and humble style seems to be conquering the hearts of people worldwide. In fact this Pope seems to improvise quite a bit. In fact it seems like he forgot to say the Angelus in other languages.

"Usually he would speak in different languages and we were hoping for that, but that's ok.”

"He's not a European. He's seen worldwide and that's very important.”

"I love that his words are very simple. They touch everyone. He's a very humble Pope, very human and good, especially what he said today about mercy.”

After celebrating the Angelus, the Pope wrote on Twitter. He thanked the crowd and also asked them to keep on praying for him.
