Here is an inside look at what the Holy Father does with his time.
The man who occupies the Throne of Peter is in charge of roughly 1.2 billion Catholics around the world, and his chief role is to do what he can to lead the faithful closer in relationship with Jesus Christ.
To that end, the pope of today has designed his day with his primary responsibilities in mind, maintaining a strict schedule of prayer that keeps his soul in touch with God.
