The week of April 8th, I traveled to Rome as part of the delegation of the Catholic Association of Latino Leaders (CALL) for meetings with Vatican officials that had been scheduled over a year ago.
To our great surprise and amazement, when we arrived at the Vatican residence known as Domus Sanctae Marthae, we learned that Pope Francis was residing there. We had the unique privilege to pray, have meals and meet with him. Pope Francis has departed from the formalities of the Vatican which allowed us to see firsthand the the universal pastor of the Church as a humble, easygoing, and most gracious prelate.
During our week at Domus Sanctae Marthae, we were deeply touched by the Pope's style and, more importantly, by his daily reflections on the scriptures.
