A receptionist at the Vatican better look out for stray lightning bolts after inadvertently dissing Pope Francis, thinking he was a prank caller.
The Croatian website Bitno reports the pontiff, who has already made headlines for his no-fuss persona, demonstrated it again when he personally dialed up the receptionist in order to be connected to his old Jesuit order boss Adolfo Nicolas. When the receptionist asked who he should say was calling, the Holy Father responded, and the secretary said, "Oh yes? And I'm Napoleon."
The Pope was finally able to convince the skeptical secretary of his true identity, comforting the red-faced receptionist by saying, "Do not worry, Andreas, just connect me with Father General, I would like to thank him for [his] charming letter."
Vatican experts say for the pontiff to make his own phone calls is all but unheard of, but is perfectly in character for the man being hailed as the humble man hailed as "The People's Pope."
