Pope Francis greets the crowd as he arrives for his weekly general audience in St. Peter's Square at the Vatican, Wednesday, March 5, 2014. The pontiff  says he finds the hype that is increasingly surrounding him "offensive." In an interview with Italian daily Corriere della Sera, Francis said he doesn't appreciate the myth-making that has seen him depicted as a "Superpope" who sneaks out at night to feed the poor. On Wednesday, a new Italian weekly hit newsstands — a gossip magazine devoted entirely to the pope. Francis said: "The pope is a man who laughs, cries, sleeps calmly and has friends like everyone else. A normal person." (AP Photo/Alessandra Tarantino)
