HAS POPE FRANCIS MODIFIED THE PAPAL CASSOCK?
We know that Pope Francis wants to live simply. He drives a stripped down, sub-compact Fiat to Brazil and it doesn't even have power windows and I know this as I saw the Holy Father crank down the back window himself. The Holy Father's shoulder action in this regard was unmistakeable! I doubt if the youth today at least from the USA would know what to do with a window crank on their passenger door!
Now you know I look at details. And another thing I notice, if you look at the older photo of Pope Francis' cassock above is that that extra layer of stylish buttons on his arm above the elbow is not present on the cassock that the Holy Father is wearing in Brazil.
What do you make of it?
