How Protestant is the Pope? Since taking office, Pope Francis has been a beacon of hope for many Catholics and beyond.

Thomas Schirrmacher, “the Pope’s favorite Protestant” (Die WELT), has had frequent meetings and conversations with him and has been a participant in synods and consultations at the Vatican. The fact that the Pope has apologized to his Protestant brothers makes one sit up and take notice. But what do the many other changes the pope has initiated mean for Christians of other denominations? Is there more to come here? A very personal report with many anecdotes and background information. With exclusive picture section!
