Francis Interview: “Remember to Buy a Little Dog”

Francis mentioned during his AdnKronos.com interview an old lady he met in the Buenos Aires slum on the day John Paul II died.

Bergoglio was in a bus on his way to say Mass in a favela when he heard the news.

At the end of Mass, a poor woman approached him asking for information on how a new pope is elected, “I told her about the white smoke, the cardinals, the conclave.”

She interrupted me and said, “Listen, Bergoglio, when you become pope, first remember to buy a small dog.”

I answered her that I would hardly be elected, and if so “why should I buy a dog.”

"Because every time you find yourself eating” – she answered – “give a little piece to him first, if he is ok, then go on eating".

Francis, “Perhaps after this difficult trial, with these new challenges, with pain entering people’s homes, the faithful will be more true, more authentic. Believe me, it will be so.”
