Vatican City, Jan 1:
As a child, Pope Francis thought he would like to become a butcher, the pontiff told several thousand choristers from all over the world during an audience at the Vatican.
“When I was a boy, I thought about becoming a butcher,” Francis told around 6,000 child singers from the international Pueri Cantores children’s choir on Thursday.
The Argentine pontiff said he always enjoyed to see the butchers at their trade in their market stalls in Buenos Aires during his childhood. (IANS)
