In general, it is extremely foolish … to suppose it should really be such an easy affair with faith and wisdom that they just arrive over the years as a matter of course, like teeth, a beard and that sort of thing. No, whatever a human being comes to as a matter of course, and whatever things come to him as a matter of course, it is definitely not faith and wisdom.

VATICAN–A recent interview with the Papal Alomner Archbishop Konrad Krajewski this week confirmed recent speculations that Pope Francis joins him on his nightly trips into Rome to give alms to the poor. An inside source at the Vatican told EOTT that “Swiss guards confirmed that the pope has ventured out at night dressed as Batman to meet with homeless men and women, and to fight crime.” “The first time I told him I was going out into the city in the evening, there was the risk that he would want to come with me,” Krajewski said in an interview this morning. “And when I did tell him, he merely smiled and ran away to get ready.” Krajewski went on to say that just moments after his discussion with Francis, that he witnessed the Holy Father’s Pope Mobile, “painted all black,” racing out of St. Peter’s Square with flames coming out of the back end.
