Buenos Aires, Argentina, Mar 21, 2013 / 11:01 am
Pope Francis surprised the owner of a kiosk in Buenos Aires with a telephone call to send his greetings and explain that he will no longer need a morning paper delivered each day.
Around 1:30 p.m. local time on March 18, Daniel Del Regno, the kiosk owner's son, answered the phone and heard a voice say, "Hi Daniel, it's Cardinal Jorge."
He thought that maybe a friend who knew that the former Archbishop of Buenos Aires bought the newspaper from them every day was pulling a prank on him.
"Seriously, it's Jorge Bergoglio, I'm calling you from Rome," the Pope insisted.
