After getting all of Pope Francis’s luggage loaded into the limo at the airport, the driver notices the  Pope is still standing on the curb. ‘Excuse me, Your Holiness,’ says the driver, ‘Would you please take your seat so we  can leave?’ ‘Well, to tell you the truth,’ says the Pope,’they never let me drive at the Vatican, and I’d really like to drive today.’ “I’m sorry, Your Holiness, but I cannot let you do that. I’d lose  my job! ” protests the driver, ‘Who’s going to tell?’ asks the Pope with a smile.
Reluctantly, the driver gets  into the back as the Pope climbs in behind the wheel. The driver quickly regrets his decision when, after exiting the airport, the Pontiff floors it, accelerating the limo to 130 mph. “Please slow down, Your  Holiness” pleads the worried driver, but the Pope keeps the pedal to the  metal until they hear sirens.
The Pope pulls over and rolls down the window as the cop approaches. The cop takes one look at him, goes back to his motorcycle, and gets on the  radio. ‘I need to talk to the Chief’, he says to the dispatcher. The Chief gets on the radio and the cop tells him that he’s stopped a limo going 130 mph. ‘So bust him,’ says the  Chief.
‘I don’t think we want to do  that. He’s really important,’ said the cop. The Chief exclaimed, ‘All the more reason!’ ‘No, I mean really important,’ said the cop with a bit of persistence. The Chief then asked, ‘Who do you have there, the mayor?’ Cop: ‘Bigger.’ Chief: ‘ A senator?’ Cop: ‘Bigger.’ Chief: ‘The  President?’ Cop: ‘Bigger.’ ‘Well,’ said the Chief, ‘who is it?’ Cop: ‘I think  it’s GOD! The Chief is even more puzzled and curious, ‘What makes you think it’s  God?’  Cop: ‘His chauffeur is the  Pope!’
