Pope's favourites revealed in book of past interviews

Soccer and subways and buses and paintings; these are a few of his favourite things
"The White Crucifixion" by Marc Chagall (1938), Pope Francis' favourite painting.
A book originally published in 2010, while Pope Francis was still Cardinal Bergoglio, has been retitled and republished as "Pope Francis: Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio". The book sheds light on a few of the Pope's favourite pastimes, sports, and hobbies including watching soccer and his favourite team San Lorenzo, reading, listening to music, and even his favourite virtue, person, and movie:
The interviews are in the book, "Pope Francis: Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio" by Sergio Rubin and Francesca Ambrogetti, which was originally published in 2010 under the title "El Jesuita" ("The Jesuit"). It is not yet available in English.
Catholic News Service has the story.
