What would you say to Pope Francis?

2013-10-06

Every Wednesday, thousands of people flock to St. Peters Square for the Pope's general audience. Some days more than 80,000 people make it to the audience, hoping to directly hear the Pope's words.


But what would happen if the roles changed. If you had the chance to speak to Pope Francis, what would you say? 

"I'd ask him how he can smile for so long? He always looks so happy and this gives us believers, a lot of trust.”

"I think I would tell him that he really reminds me of John Paul II.” 

"I would tell him that he is leading by example. That's it. I don't need a list.” 

Simply coming to Rome, gives people plenty to talk about, but still some would rather have Pope Francis do all the talking

"I think I'd rather talk about him, and tell him that I so agree with what he's doing and he practices what he preaches. He uses his humility and his compassion to lead a simple life and get people back to the Church, back to the Word of God. Just with his humility.” 

But with any good conversation, good food is also a must. This tourist from New York says, she would be more than willing to make something delicious for the Pope, if he ever makes it to the Bronx. 

"Yeah, let him come to our house! We came to his house, now I want him in my house. He's welcome anytime, he's welcome anytime. FLASH I make the best spaghetti and meatballs.”

"And your gonna cook for an Italian? He's an Italian-American.” 

"He's not an Italian, he's Argentinian!” 

Of course having a private conversation with Pope Francis would be something memorable, but for those who can't find the right words, sometimes, it's silence that speaks the loudest.
