The Pope Wants Catholic Priests and Nuns to Stop Driving Flashy Cars

Pope Francis has a message for all of the Catholic priests and nuns out there: Stop driving flashy cars! Even though he's often escorted around in a sick Mercedes-Benz "Popemobile," Pope Francis doesn't think it sends the right message to the world when a priest or nun is spotted whipping a luxury ride. So he wants all of those who do it to consider driving a more "humble" vehicle in the future.

"It hurts me when I see a priest or nun with the latest model car," he said. "You can't do this. A car is necessary to do a lot of work, but please, choose a more humble one. If you like the fancy one, just think about how many children are dying of hunger in the world."

Yikes. Talk about Catholic guilt!
