Pope Sells Harley for Hostel
Pope Francis has even given up the Mercedes Popemobile used by his predecessor, Pope Benedict, to greet the public from Fiats these days. The Pope warns his flock that God is being "replaced by fleeting human idols which offer the intoxication of a flash of freedom, but in the end bring new forms of slavery and death."
In June, Francis warned a group of trainee priests and nuns to avoid fast cars, telling them, “It hurts my heart when I see a priest with the latest model car.”
The Harley presented to the Pope will be auctioned to raise money for refurbishment at the hostel and soup kitchen.
It would be interesting to get his opinion on the poor slob who wants to pay a fortune for the Harley Holy Roller. It seems Francis has no problem taking their money for a good cause, but still admonishing the riders who covet his ride.
