Pope Francis's great-nephews and their mother killed in car crash in Argentina | Mail Online
The deaths came after Francis last night gave himself only another 'two or three years' to live.
'I see it as the generosity of the people of God. I try to think of my sins, my mistakes, not to become proud. Because I know it will last only a short time,' he said.
Then, apparently light-heartedly, he added: 'Two or three years and then I'll be off to the Father's House.'
While the 77-year-old pope has not spoken publicly before about when he might die, a Vatican source said he had previously told those close to him that he thought he only had a few years left.
