image for Pope's Former Neighbor Recalls Love Letter
A Strange Kid - Says Former Neighbor

An Argentine man who grew up as the neighbor of the future Pope Francis says he was very briefly the object of his affections when the future pontiff was 12.

Pedro Damonte, now 96, still lives four doors down from where Jorge Mario Bergoglio grew up in Buenos Aires.

Damonte says it was clear early on that he was thinking about dedicating his life to the catholic church.

He says in a handwritten letter he left for him, the future pontiff drew a picture of a little white house with a red roof and wrote "this is what I'll buy when we live together."

Damonte says he disregarded the note, advising Bergoglio parent's that the their son had a strange outlook on the relationships between young boys and older men.

"I knew then that one day he would become a priest," smiled Damonte.
