>>> pope francis was doing what a lot of people are doing on new year's eve, calling old friends -- work-related of course. one of the calls was to the carmelite nuns of spain. the pope likes to cold call people. the risk is they are out and of course the nuns were out on new year's eve so the pope left a voicemail. [ beep ]

>> here is the translation. the pope said, what are the nuns doing that they can't answer the phone? i am pope francis. i wish to greet you in this end of the year. i will see if i can call you later. may god bless you.
