Although his intentions are good, he’s actually making life very difficult for those to whom his safety is entrusted. This kind of gesture is good, perhaps even prudent, once or twice. But if he tries to operate this way for the rest of his papacy, he’s actually making things harder for those around him, for the little people.

So let’s hope it’s symbolic. John Paul II did several things like this too, but he also recognized a need to work with, not against, his staff.

It will be tough for the new Pope because before yesterday, he was very much “unknown”, but then, even Blessed John Paul II was a “unknown” himself before he became Pope. Plus for the strength to carry out this new calling of God.
