Dear Pope Francis, I really love it when you hug babies and sick people. I also love the down-to-earth way of living and handling things you seem to have. However, when hugging becomes a substitute for sound teaching and telling the truth in no uncertain terms, when casual wear leads people to disrespect both yourself and the institution of the Pope, when the media focuses on the Pope as some sort of rock star because hugging makes good pictures and ambiguous quotes sound good in the press (even though they seem to mislead many!) and the Church centers only on you as the media hype, then this becomes a problem. Stay the way you are, but keep in mind your role and responsability as a Pope as well. Thanks.
