Pope Francis.Spot the difference 1. Changed the golden throne by a wooden chair... Something more appropriate for the disciple of a carpenter. Did not want the gold. embroidered red stole. Uses same old black shoes, not the classic red. Uses a metal cross, not of rubies and diamonds. His papal ring is silver, not gold. Uses the same black pants under the cassock, to remember that he is just another priest. Removed the red carpet. He is not interested in fame & applause.
