"Without any type of embarrassment, he told a group of foreign businessmen: 'I need your help. I walk around the streets and I see small poor children get into these brand new cars. This is unacceptable. We have to do something. '”

She would often run into Cardinal Bergoglio in the post office or even when using public transportation.

"I remember one day, I asked him: 'Monsignor, how are you doing'? He said, 'Oh everything is good, just working on some paperwork.'One lady heard me, so she got out of her seat and said 'please sit down Monsignor.' He said, 'No, no, no...you must be a lot more tired than me. You have plenty to do at home and now you're going to work.'”

In addition to his humbleness, Muñoz says she remembers Cardinal Bergoglio as a person who always wanted faith to grown upon a solid foundation. It's something that he highlighted during his first Mass with cardinals, where he said, that to be Christians, one must walk, build, construct and confess.
