"Super Pope"



Comic book super heroes are known to go out at night to fight crime.  Batman in particular, also called the "Dark Knight," is one of these characters.  However, in the real world there appears to be another hero who dresses in white and is apparently helping others at night. 

Some news outlets are speculating that Pope Francis may be "sneaking out" of the Vatican dressed as a typical diocesan priest with roman collar shirt and dark trousers in order to give alms to the poor in the area.  He is known for doing this back in Argentina, so it may be possible.  However, back in Argentina he did not have an entourage of security behind him.  The Vatican is mum on the issue, but Archbishop Krajewski has poured gas on this flaming speculation after saying that when he goes out and tells the Pope, there's a risk of him coming along.  When he was asked to elaborate, he simply smiled and evaded the question.

According to the Huffington Post, Swiss Guards have apparently confirmed that Pope Francis does "sneak out" at night.  I have not heard this directly from the Swiss Guards so I will leave it up to readers to believe it or not.  If he does do this, why would the Swiss Guards confirm it so that possible attackers can be on the lookout for him?
