Can we follow where he leads?

The man of the year washes the feet of prisoners, reaches out to gays and atheists, has a reformer's passion for change -- and wears orthopedic shoes instead of the scarlet footwear of the Fisherman (not that many actual fisherman wear bright red shoes.

But can we do more than admire him?

Can we actually imitate him (as in "imitatio Christi")?

I have to admit, I wonder how much of the popularity of this Pope is due to the fact that we like what he preaches.

Which doesn't mean that we are really all that good at practicing it.  Read my Lancaster column, and let me know what YOU think.
