Driving What You Preach

While meeting with a group of nuns and priests in training the Pope was quoted saying:

“A car is necessary to do a lot of work, but please, choose a more humble one. If you like the fancy one, just think about how many children are dying of hunger in the world.”

The Pope was spotted, driving what he preaches, when he arrived this week arriving at the Papal Summer Home in a Ford Focus.

I watch the news to stay updated and know what the heck is going on around my city, but after 5 min. I get pretty depressed and worried for the safety of my family and friends.
