PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It was a big day for newly-elected Pope Francis.
He celebrated his first mass as pope inside Saint Peter’s Basilica. His homily was short, and he spoke without notes in Italian.
It is being looked at by many as a new beginning for the Catholic Church – a new pope who is said to be in touch with common folk.
So, what does Pope Francis mean for the future of the church? It’s too soon to say, but one expert on the church says the biggest change may be his style.
In his first public appearance, Pope Francis refused the red gown and the jewels. According to an expert on the Catholic Church at Duquesne law school, it ruffled some feathers at the Vatican.
