His Holiness Pope Francis brought with him his humility when he sat as the leader of the Roman Catholics. He has shunned life of extravagance, expressed his views on issues that didn't isolate anyone, and extended his hand to meet with the leaders of other religions. In the words of Time writer Desmond Tutu, "Few would dispute that Pope Francis is a special gift from God who has brought a breath of fresh air to the Vatican."
