Pope Francis is breaking with tradition and changing the tone of the papacy, both to the delight and chagrin of the Catholic Church.
Ever since he was elected pope in March, Francis has exhibited a marked departure from his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI. Even his shoes, shown here, are symbolic of a simpler papacy in contrast to the bright red shoes favorited by Benedict.
