I like cooking for myself.
I am just peculiar about the way things should be done.
And I like my modest studio apartment.
Everything I own fits in the trunk of my car.
I can live anywhere in the world with little effort.
I identify with Francis on this.
I would take the apartment next to his, if he will have me.
Maybe they will list it on craigslist.com
Pope Francis is a single man living alone. Cooking for himself is probably his only hobby. His time belongs to the Church & the world’s Catholics. If he chooses to live simply, the Holy Father is merely living & leading by example.
He can meet prelates and heads of state in the appropriate settings within the Vatican. He will often celebrate Mass amidst the opulence of St. Peter’s. Retreat into his plain apartments at the end of a long day’s duty, in the silence & solitude of the Lord’s beneficence, is blessed relief from his pressing duties as Pope and as Bishop of Rome.
