New pope biography details Francis' daily routine

VATICAN CITY, A new biography of Pope Francis says the new pontiff is a good cook who gets up early and likes to the end the day with cappuccino from a vending machine.

Author Elisabetta Pique is an Argentine journalist and friend of the pope whose book "Francis: Life and Revolution," was previewed Saturday in the Italian weekly Gente.

Pique compiled a collection of recollections from Francis' old friends in Argentina and details of his new life in the Vatican as head of the Roman Catholic Church, Italy's ANSA news service said.

The book said Francis was an adept cook, particularly when it comes to the South American dish paella. He starts his day with another regional delicacy, the caffeine-rich "mate," when he gets up at 4:15 in the morning. At 5 p.m., he likes to recharge with a cappuccino from a machine at the Vatican's St. Martha's House.

The Admin Mods that were on duty are not around to ask right now but evidently the article pertains to a biography of a religious authority rather than a news/activism subject.

I did not post under news/activism.

Are the Admin Mods that were on duty hit and run?

All mods make judgment calls, this is one of them. I support the mods’ judgment call.

Well, who can argue with what you support even if it’s wrong.

How where and the content of post matters.
Changing my posts is censorship.

To relegate my post to RELIGEON is to nullify it.
