Pope Francis has said his position as Pontiff will be brief.

The head of the Roman Catholic Church Pope Francis revealed that he may quit his position sooner than expected.

He made the revelation while speaking to a Mexican broadcaster as he marked his second anniversary as the Pope. ‘I have the feeling that my pontificate will be brief, four or five years; I do not know, even two or three. Two have already passed. It's a somewhat vague sensation,’ he said.

The 78-years-old, who became the head of the church on March 13, 2013, said the Lord put him in the position for a ‘short time and nothing more.’

Pope Francis would be the second Pontiff to vacate his seat after a brief leadership if he eventually quits.

Pope Benedict XVI resigned in 2013, becoming the first Pope in centuries to do so.
