Pontiff opts for 'simple' living, says Vatican spokesman

Pope continues to live in residence with other clergy

Vatican City, March 26 - Pope Francis will continue to "experiment" with living in the Santa Marta residence in "simple cohabitation" with other cardinals, Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said on Tuesday. Francis, who was elected pope on March 13, has been staying in a suite at the Vatican's Domus Santa Marta, while his papal apartment was being prepared. On Tuesday, Lombardi said that work on Pope Francis' apartment had been completed, but that the pontiff would remain living in the 120-room residence with other clergy for an undetermined amount of time. Francis' humble approach that marked his time as the Archbishop of Buenos Aires has continued into his newly born papacy.
