Pope Francis speaks his mind regularly, including hot topics such as homosexuality, abortion and contraception. He has also appeared to be very down to earth, at times turning down the perks of the church, and is more hands-on in public appearances than Popes of the past. I visited St Joseph's Cathedral to talk to members of the church, and almost everyone was pleased with the job Pope Francis has done so far.
“I like Pope Francis very much, I think he's exciting and refreshing,” Matt Billion said.
Some of the people I talked to said that the open-mind that Pope Francis has in many situations is something that the Catholic Church needs.
