2015-01-09

The so called "Pope's raffle” finally took place.  The owner of the number 00333 won the biggest prize: a brand new Fiat Panda. All of the 40 prizes were gifts given to Pope Francis throughout the year.

The money raised from the sale of tickets will be sent charity works.

"Pope Francis has shown he is a very humble person who is always looking after the poor. He is always getting rid of wealth.”

"I think that all the gifts came from God...It doesn't matter if it was a book, a poster...or a car.”

The winning numbers were published on January 9th on the webpage of the Vatican City State. The winners will have a total of 30 days to collect their prizes.
