Pope Francis is known for his down-to-earth style and being socially active. He’s had an Instagram account for quite some time now, for instance.
According to Daily Mail, the Pope, following his normal way of doing things, called up a Vatican receptionist directly. What he got for foregoing the Papal protocol, was not gratitude or encouragement but a tart, “Oh, yes? And I’m Napoleon!”
Well, the good natured, and good humored guy that he is, he did not mind the reply, nor did he rebuke the other person but very deliberately made him understand that he was indeed the Pope himself!!
According to Daily Mail, he told the receptionist, “I really am Pope Francis. Do not worry, Andreas, just connect me with Father General, I would like to thank him for the charming letter.”
Pope Francis, a humble man, is known for cooking his own food, living in his own apartment and riding the bus to work and not taking other’s help for granted.
He has continued this way even after becoming the Pope. He eschews protocol and has so far preferred the bus to the papal limo.
