Priests take a vow of celibacy. They do not take a vow of poverty.

Religious-order priests, such as Pope Francis, do take a vow of poverty. Anyway, we are all called to practice evangelical poverty, appropriate to our station in life, just as we are called to practice chastity and obedience.

If they are in an order, they might take a vow of poverty. Diocesan priests usually do not.
