Pope Francis, the current pope of the Catholic church, continues to do an amazing job of showing love and charity to the poor, sick, and elderly.
Pope Francis has just received a unique Lamborghini Huracan sports car, but he won’t be driving it. The pontiff, known for his humble lifestyle, has decided to auction the expensive present to raise money for the poor.
The donated Lamborghini Huracan, which normally sells for more than $200,000, was signed by the pope outside his Vatican residence and will be auctioned by Sotheby’s, with proceeds given to the pontiff to help the needy.

The Vatican said all the money would go to projects to help Christians return to rebuild their homes in Iraq’s Nineveh Plains that were destroyed by Islamic State militants.
They will also go to help female victims of human trafficking and forced prostitution and to two Italian groups which provide medical services in central Africa.
Francis has shunned the papal limousines used by his predecessors in favor of a simple blue Ford Focus.
Back in 2013, he donated his Harley Davidson motorcycle to be sold to raise money for a hostel and soup kitchen that serves Rome’s homeless.
