Jim Nicholson talked with Fox & Friends about Pope Francis’ extraordinary trip to the Philippines. Calling Francis a “big-hearted pastor of the world”, Nicholson noted the Pope’s popular appeal to people of all faiths because of his humility, his authenticity, and his special call to restore dignity and help for the poor and hungry. More than six million attended the Pope’s open-air Mass in Manila, the largest turnout ever for a human being.
