frosbel: The catholic church should sell their assets and gold reserves worth over 5 billion dollars and give the money to the poor, only then will we believe this so called church has changed.

Mind you this is the same church that has done the most philanthropic services since the inception of mankind. Schools, hospitals etc. We can see a lot of their work in Africa. They don't need to prove any point to you.

The pope just hit the nail straight, our pastors and men of God seldom use 'humble' things again, they prefer to go with the trend. They will always want to back up their excessive and flamboyance with a verse from the scripture. In most cases, aside catholic priests and a few others, they engage in fashion parade every sunday; new clothes, shoes etc cleanliness is next to Godliness we all know, but everything should be in moderation. May God help us all, to spend more on those who do not have and live a less expensive and christian life.

Pope, you are correct, the money ought to be spent on charity rather than flashy cars and jets.

Thank you his holiness pope Francis. I totally support what u have said but it is worthy of note that most of these priests get these cars as gift. In that case what should they do....i love the humble life of this pope.....read more about him via google.....Long live the church

fredoooooo: VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis said on Saturday it pained him to see priests driving flashy cars, and told them to pick something more "humble".

As part of his drive to make the Catholic Church more austere and focus on the poor, Francis told young and trainee priests and nuns from around the world that having the latest smartphone or fashion accessory was not the route to happiness.

"It hurts me when I see a priest or a nun with the latest model car, you can't do this," he said.
"A car is necessary to do a lot of work, but please, choose a more humble one. If you like the fancy one, just think about how many children are dying of hunger in the world," he said.

Since succeeding Pope Benedict in March, the former cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina has eschewed some of the more ostentatious trappings of his office and has chosen to live in a Vatican guest house rather than the opulent papal apartments.

The ANSA news agency said the pope's car of choice for moving around the walled Vatican City was a compact Ford Focus.

My dear d pope owns no jet,uses commercial airlines ok. I guess u were not listening to the commentators d day he was elected,all they could describe him as was *a humble fellow*
nairaman66: In all honesty- Are there humble cars these days? The Pope goes on a jet, yet wants his followers to go with simple cars.. Hmmm!

Unless he proves a point contrary to mine.. I'll stick to the former.. undecided
