Per the Telegraph:
“Someone who wants to be pope does not really like themselves,” the pontiff said laughing, in answer to a child’s query during a question-and-answer session with Jesuit school students in the Vatican.
“I did not want to be pope,” he said.
His predecessor Benedict XVI once said he had prayed to God not to be elected pope but that “evidently this time he didn’t listen to me”.
Authentic humility is really nice…and all too rare.
