Pope Francis

 

 

 

Pope Francis created mayhem in Brazil when the driver of the Fiat he was in made a wrong turn, and his car was mobbed. To the chagrin of security officials, he had traveled simply in a charter flight without the bulletproof popemobile.

Word is he carried his own luggage.

He still refuses the Papal residence, staying in a modest guesthouse.

He dispenses with the fleet of Mercedes Benz (and apparently chauffer), and instead drives a 2008 Ford Focus.

At first I had a problem with that.

I drive a 2007 Ford Focus.

But then I figured – hey, he’s the Pope. It’s okay if his car is newer than mine.
