The Pope’s Choice of Car: A Ford Focus

Practicing what he preaches:

Pope Francis arrived at the papal summer home, Castel Gandolfo, in a humble Ford Focus

The down-to-earth Pope called for greater austerity from religious figures last week, saying, “It hurts me when I see a priest or nun with the latest-model car. You can’t do this. 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.” The Ford Focus is a compact car with a starting sticker price of just about $16,000.

  1. Insidious piece of reporting pitting “humble” Francis against “lavish and worldly” Benedict. The Devil does not need to do much work with HuffPost around.

  2. Wonderful…. this Pope is really great. I bet there are lots of people upset in the Vatican curia and episcopate.
