I love the Pope. I agree with him about everything having to do with Catholic doctrine.
We part ways from time to time on non-doctrinal issues. I think he might be misinformed about climate change. He backs the wrong soccer team. But how could anyone not like the man?
Pope Francis is joyful, direct, hard-working and down-to-earth. And he serves ice cream on Air Papa. According to press reports (you have to believe the press ate most of the ice cream) the ride to Rome from the Philippines included a choice of pistachio, malted milk or brown butter almond brittle.
I would have gone for one of each.
