I didn’t expect to be elected, I had even bought the return tickets to Argentina

– says Pope.

He also added that it was very hard for him to proceed from being the archbishop of Buenos Aires to the head of all world of Catholics.

Pope Francis also confessed about the feeling of missing the ordinary life things, such as eating pizza in a cozy cafe or walking the streets alone. Sometimes he is going for a walk at night and even talks with homeless.

Although being very sociable, Holy Farther doesn’t use modern means of communications with the globalized world. He is neither watching TV nor using internet. Nevertheless, he likes to spend time, getting information about social events by reading the Italian newspaper La Repubblica for no more that 10 minutes daily.
