Pope Francis, head of the Roman Catholic Church, has jokingly told an archbishop in Argentina that he prefers to avoid living in the Vatican's luxurious papal apartment because he fears it would make it easier for robbers to steal from him.

Buenos Aires Archbishop Mario Poli says that the Pope's comments to him about getting robbed if he lived in the Vatican rather than in the very simple residence he has selected as his habitat, was not to be taken seriously and was just a bit of gossip that occurred between two friends. Poli was the church administrator selected to replace Francis when he was selected by the College of Cardinals to become the Pope earlier this year.

Poli also reports that Pope Francis feels very happy and free now that he is head of the church and doesn't even mind that fact that he encounters occasional problems as happens in every family.

Pope Francis was formerly Archbishop of Buenos Aires, where he was known for being very frugal, keeping his own house, doing his own cooking and even riding public transportation rather than being chauffeured around in an expensive limousine. There is no word if anyone else in currently living in the Vatican's papal apartment.
