In an interview with Buenos Aires favela tabloid La Carcova News the pope said that if fanatics want to kill him, it is 'God's will'.
He said: 'Life is in God's hands. I have said to the Lord, "You take care of me. But if it is your will that I die or something happens to me, I ask you only one favour: that it doesn't hurt. Because I am a real wimp when it comes to physical pain."
