Love, Pope Francis, and Tumblr: <p><a class="tumblr_blog" href="http://captainmigz.tumblr.com/post/48033147715/recently-when-he-left-his-apartment-at-domus">captainmigz</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><span>Recently, when he left his apartment at Domus Marta and went out into the hall, the Pope found a Swiss Guard standing at attention outside his door.</span><br/><br/><span>He asked him, “And what are you doing here? Were you awake all night?</span><br/><br/><span>“Yes,” the guard answered respectfully.</span><br/><span class="text_exposed_show"><br/>“Standing?”<br/><br/>“One of my colleagues gave me a break.”<br/><br/>“And you’re not tired?”<br/><br/>“It’s my duty Your Holiness, for Your safety.”<br/><br/>The Pope looked at him with kindness. He went back into his apartment and, after a few minutes, returned with a chair in his hand: “At least sit down and rest.”<br/><br/>Shocked, the Swiss Guard replied, “Forgive me, but I can’t! The rules don’t allow it.”<br/><br/>“The rules?”<br/><br/>“My captain, Your Holiness.”<br/><br/>“Oh, is that so? Well, I’m the Pope and I am asking you to sit down.”<br/><br/>So, between the rules and the Pope, the Swiss Guard, complete with his halberd, chose the chair. And then the Pope brought him some bread and jam for a snack, saying, “Buon appetito, brother.”</span></p> </blockquote> <p>I love this guy. </p>
