Cardinal Bergoglio is known as a simple, humble person who eschewed the pomp of his high office in the church. Until now, he has lived in a simple apartment and cooked his own meals.
How refreshing! Hopefully, his humility will hold out against the seduction of the lavish and regal trappings of the Vatican's highest office. I wondered about this very thing on another thread and was castigated for daring to mention it. Nice to know the new Pope thinks the same about the place of humility in a servant of Christ.

(God is ready to assume full responsibility for the life wholly yielded to Him.)
Some folks simply like to eat alone.

The Papacy needs to have lavish and regal trappings, based on the dignity of the position.
