Pope Francis has been exciting Catholics and non-Catholics worldwide through his humble dealings with the laity and his tough dealings with the Vatican bureaucracy. Yet this humble man is concerned with the rock-star following he is receiving due mainly to his humble approach to the public. He now has a celebrity magazine bearing a centerfold in each issue.
Still, he relishes his ability to reach the public, even reaching out to atheists recently. He uses his popularity to good effect, and is making important changes for the better in the church and the world at large. Three cheers for a wonderful example of servant leadership.
