REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Pope Francis reveals that he gave in to that “thief in all of us” and broke the 7th Commandment by stealing.
The Pope admits stealing a small cross from the coffin of a priest, in remembrance of the man. To this day, he says, he uses this cross to remind him of doing good work.
While the head of the Catholic Church has not specified when the incident took place, he did say it was during the funeral of an elderly priest he admired, in his native Buenos Aires.
“I took the cross that was on the rosary and, using some force, detached it,” he said.
