Pope Francis is breaking with tradition and changing the tone of the papacy, both to the delight and chagrin of the Catholic Church.
Pope Francis made history in late March when he washed the feet of young prisoners in Rome for his Holy Thursday service. Two young women were among 12 people whose feet Pope Francis washed and kissed in a traditional ceremony, the first time a pontiff included females in the rite.
