Move Over Che Guevara. All the Cool Kids Are Wearing Pope Francis

A t-shirt is not always just a t-shirt

Remember when, not long ago, any hipster college student worth his weight in clove cigarettes could be seen wearing a Che Guevara t-shirt?

While it was probably more of a fashion thing than an expression of allegiance to the Marxist icon, kids on campus today are donning Pope Francis t-shirts with a purpose. Popular among the young for his humility and love of the poor, the Holy Father is taking the campus fashion world by storm.

FOCUS, the  Fellowship of Catholic University Students, is offering the t-shirts emblazoned with Pope Francis’ image at their website for $11.99.  The group provides outreach and support to Catholic university students at secular and Catholic schools across the country.
