‘The spirit in me,’ says Pope Francis ‘test it!’ (cf. 1 Cor 14:31-33 & 1 Jn 4:1-6)
Again from the same interview:
I chose to live here, in Room 201, because when I took possession of the papal apartment, inside myself I distinctly heard a ‘no.’
[Update Tuesday, December 6, 2016: Room 201 …hmmm… 2+0+1 = 3]

Back in April, I interviewed his sister, Maria Elena Bergoglio, and even she told me that something was different about her brother since he took over the church’s top job.
Recently, I spoke to one of the cardinals who elected Francis (not an American, by the way), who had been received by the pope in a private audience. The cardinal told me he had said point-blank to Francis, “You’re not the same guy I knew in Argentina.”
According to this cardinal, the pope’s reply was more or less the following: “When I was elected, a great sense of inner peace and freedom came over me, and it’s never left me.”
