Really? I had no idea the Pope lived in such luxury as you claim.
I think that living a life in the spotlight, under the constant threat of assassination, and of having every move watched is not exactly luxury.
He wears the finest clothes, has the finest foods, lives in a palace with servants where his ever need is catered to and DOES NOT fear assassination....he has his own secret service.
What does he need? Nothing.
He is no more closely examined than any other powerful person who leads a semi public life.
Can you be serious?
