VATICAN CITY (CNS) — A religious procession, a brainstorm session and a few glasses of wine led a group of residents gathered in a shantytown on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, Argentina, to come up with a plan to interview Pope Francis.

It was a warm, Southern Hemisphere’s summer night in January when folks sitting in the church courtyard during a local feast day celebration felt inspired to consider “What if …?” according to a journalist living in Buenos Aires.

“To tell the truth, a few glasses of wine were also involved, which, in the right amount, inspires bold ideas,” said Alver Metalli, who was also the mastermind behind the shantytown launching its own community newspaper in December.
