In a recent interview with a Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia, Pope Francis spoke about why he prefers not to use the bulletproof Popemobile.
“I remember in Brazil, they’d provided for me an enclosed Popemobile, but I cannot greet the people and tell them I love them inside a sardine can, even if it is made of glass. For me it is a wall.”
“It is true something could happen to me but let’s be realistic, at my age I do not have much to lose. I know what could happen, but it is in God’s hands.”
