That's right, it looks like Pope Francis is the newest member of the Vancouver Canucks fan club!
B.C. Newlyweds Joseph and Marion San Jose were in Rome on their honeymoon when the Canucks fans had a chance to meet the Pope. After hanging out in the area, waiting to meet the Pope for about five hours, they finally got their chance, and gave him his own personalized Canucks jersey.
Apparently, the Pope was very happy to see the jersey, accepted their gift, acknowledged it was a hockey jersey and then blessed the couple. An Italian publication called L'Osservatore Romano caught those great moments on camera.
