The USA media in early June of last year began to report that Francis was gaining weight. The next month the Italian press continued with this story and talked with people inside the kitchens at Casa Santa Marta. Elisabetta Pique even made a passing mention of Francis' life long passion for food in her biography on him, Pope Francis: Life and Revolution. As photos were published during Francis recent trip to the Philippines it become evident that Francis' insatiable appetite hasn't diminished in the least. From appearances, it seems to be growing. As someone who is always identifying with the poor it is ironic he is becoming so fat. Since he is currently a darling of the liberal media, there has been silence on this contrast. Below we re-post an entry from Mudabor's Blog which dicusses Francis' passion for food.
