Pope Francis Superhero! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A mural in Rome depicting Pope Francis as a superhero has disappeared but the street artist behind it hinted it might show up in a new location.


The mural, painted by street artist Mauro Pallotta, depicted the pontiff in a Superman-style flying pose."


A street cleaning company treated the mural as graffiti and removed it from the wall near Vatican City. But the artist has been meeting with the owners of a larger building to discuss painting a larger-scale version of his Superhero Pope.

In just a few months Pope Francis has become an internationally beloved religious figure, his humility and compassion has gained him millions of fans worldwide.

Even Pope John Paul II, credited with helping bringing down the Soviet Evil Empire, didn`t elicit such universal love and admiration.

Let`s pray that Pope Francis will take advantage of all of this good will, and reform the stodgy, bureaucratic, and patriarchal Roman Catholic Church.

Long live Pope Francis Superhero!
