Pope's quotes: I am a sinner

A quote from Pope Francis:

“I am a sinner … I am sure of this. I am a sinner whom the Lord looked upon with mercy. I am, as I said to detainees in Bolivia, a forgiven man. … I still make mistakes and commit sins, and I confess every fifteen or twenty days. And if I confess it is because I need to feel that God's mercy is still upon me.”

-- Interview with Italian magazine, Credere, Dec. 2, 2015
