Father Thomas Rosica took a walk with Cardinal Bergoglio a few days before his election as Pope Francis. He also met him in February 2001 and witnessed his humble, prayerful lifestyle.
Pope Francis lives very simply, brings a pastoral approach to his ministry, and is a man of prayer, according to the Vatican's press office director.
Father Thomas Rosica, the English-language assistant for the Vatican press office, told journalists at a hastily arranged March 13 press briefing that he had talked to Pope Francis on Sunday, March 10.
"Sunday night we were out for a walk and he pulled me over. He took me by the hand and said, 'I want you to pray for me. I'm a little nervous right now.'"
