Remember those distressing movies where an innocent soul was kidnapped and held for ransom?  These alarming scenarios often produced endless nightmares and the tendency to double lock all doors and windows. Often, there seemed to be no way to rescue the victim without paying a huge sum of money for their release.

Papal footwear has been a pop culture curiosity in the past few years.  Pope Benedict had his crimson slippers, but Pope Francis prefers a more humble, pastoral shoe.  Besides messaging, it seems Pope Frank has flat feet, according to his long-time cobbler in Buenos Aires.  Not everyone has or needs a personal cobbler, but if you’re ready to embrace the pope’s message of simplicity, perhaps it’s time to change your shoes.
