Papal doppelgänger

As you might expect, there are lots of piety shops in Assisi, selling a myriad of church goods.

This small statue of Pope Francis caught my eye. At least, I think it’s Pope Francis.

If you ask me, though, it looks more like one of our Australian bishops than it does the Bishop of Rome:

I don’t know Archbishop Wilson well enough to present this statue to His Grace, but I did almost buy it for a priest friend from Adelaide.

But no. Better to take a photo and blog about it!
