Pope Francis has made a confession of sorts, telling a 16-year-old girl that he doesn’t have a clue how to work a computer.

The 78-year-old Francis made the confession Thursday during a Google Hangout with several disabled children from around the world. Francis responded to them from a Vatican audience hall during a conference of his Scholas Initiative, which seeks to bring young people together via sports, art, and technology.

The children involved showed Francis how they make use of technology, including braille keypads, tablets, and video cameras.

A child named Alicia, from Spain, asked Francis if he liked taking photos with his computer.

“Do you want me to tell you the truth? I’m a disaster with machines. I don’t know how to work a computer. What a shame!” Francis said.
