    Default Pope Francis continues to surprise snubs papal apartments to live in Vatican guesthouse

    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.”

    He's obviously very proud of his humility

    This is the second thread on this subject in the same section of the forum launched by the same poster inside a couple of minutes- despite the subject of the papal apartment story being mentioned in an existing thread.

    Are the mods aware of these techniques or just playing dumb?

    don't think this requires two threads

    'Wasn't aware' .. despite launching two threads on the same subject within minutes of each other?

    Pope Francis to live in Vatican guesthouse, not papal apartments

    Vatican City

    Pope Francis has decided not to move into the papal apartments in the Apostolic Palace, but to live in a suite in the Vatican guesthouse where he has been since the beginning of the conclave that elected him, said Jesuit Fr. Federico Lombardi, Vatican spokesman.

    "He is experimenting with this type of living arrangement, which is simple," but allows him "to live in community with others," both the permanent residents -- priests and bishops who work at the Vatican -- as well as guests coming to the Vatican for meetings and conferences, Lombardi said Tuesday. ...
    Hopefully, this makes it slightly less likely that he will become a prisoner of the Vatican Curia.
