As you all may know, Pope Emeritus Benedict liked our shoes, so much that he declared he will be using them in retirement.
Now we have a new Pope, his birth name is Jorge Mario Bergoglio and he is from Argentina, a country located at the south-end of South America, known for its food, wine, soccer and sense of style.
Somehow, Pope Francis is not interested on fashion or even on dressing according to his importance as he is one of the most influential people in the world.
Contrary to what some people may think, I love Francis; I love that he doesn’t care for shoes, I think he is the coolest person alive.
I was born catholic and my family has been catholic for generation. Just like many Mexicans we attended church every Sunday and prayed every night, but as a matter of fact that made me more critical of my religion, a religion I founded constricted and severe.
Pope Francis is changing that for me. He tweets, he addresses contemporary problems in our culture, and he apologizes for the mistakes of the church! If there is a definition of a great person in any religion it is Pope Francis.
We should all try to be a little be like Francis, we should pursue a higher standard for ourselves, let’s be honest, happy, compassionate and do our best, always.
The good think is, we can do it in a great pair of J.L Rocha Shoes.
