    Seems to me there are some mega-church pastors who could well learn from Pope Francis ... maybe all of us could learn from his example.

    The History Channel in Secret Access: The Vatican showed pictures inside the Pope's living quarters. They were just middle-class except that he has a lot of gold stuff befitting a king that has been donated over the centuries. He had a private office, a private chapel, a tv room, a piano, etc. I think that my tv at 40" is larger than his. Of course, The Vatican is in an ornate European style, like a palace. But the upkeep on buildings like that is very expensive. He may have to go to the papal apartment to address the crowd from the balcony window.

    You can see his quarters on YouTube:
