Pope Francis Lied To His Parents

Maria, during an interview back in 2013, revealed that her brother committed a little sin by lying about his true vocation to their parents when he was young. 

She expressed that she never expected her brother to be Pope. However, her brother fulfilled his duties with more responsibilities and was always inclined towards serving the poor and the most marginalized.  

She further said that he lied about his true vocation to his parents. 

According to her, her brother, at age 21, had already started working as a chemical technician and was working in a medical laboratory. 

At 21, he decided to change his vocation but initially told their parents that he had planned to study at the medical school, and their parents agreed. 

One day, their mother went to his room on the top floor, where he had cloistered himself. 

She only found theology and Latin books in his room, after which she confronted her son and asked why he lied to her.

In his reply, he said he had not lied to her and would study medicine but of the soul, Maria recalled. 

In an interview with CNN, she told CNN that she initially prayed for her brother not to be elected because she didn't want her brother to leave. 

She almost died when she heard the news from her son, but her brother consoled her by saying not to worry and reassuring her he was well.

Maria also said that Pope and Oscar were good among her siblings, but others were terrible.

Pope Was In Love With A Woman Before 

Maria, in an interview, revealed that her brother was in love with a girl, and she was in love with him too, but he had to choose between the love of a woman and his love of God

She said the group celebrated the first day of Spring in September. Before joining others, he went to the church to pray to the Virgin Mary and felt something. 

He said at the time that he was staying to talk to the priest, and from that time onwards never spoke to the girl again. 

Maria said the religious vocation came from their religiously based household. 

Their parents instilled in them to embrace the faith from birth, and they followed their example. As for Pope, it is a calling, she said.
