Is Jorge Mario Bergoglio also an NFL fan? Only holy teams for the Pope!


Jorge Mario Bergoglio has already expressed on many occasions that he is a football fan, San Lorenzo de Almagro being his favorite team. However, those in charge of their social networks let out a tweet from the official account of the pontiff who seems to support an NFL team.

“Today we thank the Lord for the new #Santos. They walk by faith and now we invoke their intercession,” is the message that can be read on Twitter. The publication seems to have been a misunderstanding, since the hashtag with the word “Saints” automatically displays the Louisiana team shield.

Interestingly, New Orleans is one of the most Catholic cities in the United States, with more than 40 churches around the city.
