I once saw a Franciscan friar, a visitor to my parish, on Good Friday, approaching to kiss the Cross, barefooted, with a most intense look on his face. I later asked my Franciscan pastor about this, and he said that this frian is a most intense person. The look of his face has stayed with me until this day. Evidentely it is has habit to be bare-footed on a regular basis.

Cardinal O'Malley wore sandals, like Jesus.

No, he received brown shoes from Mexico, and will wear them instead of the red from now on, or so he said through official sources.
I read that someone in Mexico gave them to him on one of his trips.
Well, I've heard it all now. CNN just unformed us that the papal red shoes were the gift of the Emperor Constantine who gave the popes the regalia of the Roman emperors.
Historians must be lying on the floor weeping at this tsunami of misinformation.
