worlddan: I dunno subby, seems to me that that there Popemobile could hold a lot of change too.
12349876: Do those robes even have pockets? What about the undergarments?
mikewadestr: With Francis' rock star status it is going to be much harder for abused boys to get justice because it will make Francis look bad. The Catholic clergy must be doing cartwheels over him.
ornithopter: Of course, if you're the Pope, and you tell them to put a pocket in, they put a pocket in. The alb and cassock may or not be mail-order, as they're pretty standardized - he absolutely COULD get custom ones, but this Pope might well insist on not doing so. But any chasuble or cope used by the Pope is undoubtedly custom-made... most high-ceremony churches' and nearly all cathedrals' are, and the Vatican's are an order of magnitude fancier./worked for a guy who made high-end vestments for several years - not for the Pope himself, but for many churches and some cathedrals

Behind the scenes he's secretly planning how to convert the entire world to catholicism.
