Pope says got stuck in Vatican lift, freed by fireman

Pope Francis was on Sunday stuck in a lift for almost half an hour, while on his way to his weekly prayer at the St Peter's Square, before he was rescued by firefighters, reports said.

Pope Francis swings a thurible of incense as he celebrates the Palm Sunday mass on April 14, 2019 at St. Peter's square in the Vatican. "I was trapped in a lift for 25 minutes, there was a power outtage but then the firemen came", the smiling 82-year old pontiff said.

Once freed, the relieved pontiff asked the pilgrims gathered in the square to give the fire brigade a round of applause.

The small personal elevate is called the "little elevator of Pope Sixtus" as a result of it hyperlinks the courtyard named after the 16th century pope to the lavishly adorned papal condo which Francis has shunned since his election in 2013.

The English pop star (born Elena Jane Goulding) has been romantically linked to Jopling, who works for Sotheby's NY , since 2017. Prince Harry and Cressida dated from 2012 until 2014, while bride Ellie is believed to have dated prince Harry in June 2016.


Pope Francis has urged governments to show the "political will" to take drastic steps to deal with climate change, saying it's time to abandon dependence on fossil fuels. "After 25 minutes of work, I was able to get out".

"Thank God the firefighters arrived, I want to thank them so much".

Francis seems to have unlimited energy despite his age.
