The new guy is one cool dude. He continues to surprise us. He is redefining the Papacy.
'Pope Francis I will be the first pope in 100 years who has chosen not to live at the papal apartments on the third floor of the Apostolic Palace.
Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, the Vatican’s spokesman, revealed on Tuesday that the new leader of the Catholic Church will remain at the guesthouse where he has been staying since the conclave elected him.
He will move into the slightly more elegant suite 201 at the Domus Sanctae Marthae guesthouse, which has a reception room. The guesthouse was built in 1996 to accommodate cardinals visiting for the conclave.
The Vatican spokesman told the National Catholic Reporter “He is experimenting with this type of living arrangement, which is simple," but allows him "to live in community with others.”
