The Pope's Right Hand Man
Mexico City—A worker places a life-size cutout of Pope Francis in downtown, February 11, ahead of the pontiff's expected arrival in Mexico on Friday for a week-long visit. Although many Mexicans eagerly await the pontiff's arrival, some are asking whether money spent on the trip would be better spent on poverty, education and other issues.
