Pope Francis Gives Hitchhiker a Holy Ride in the Popemobile

While driving through the crowds at the Vatican on Wednesday, Pope Francis surprised everyone when he stopped to pick up an enthusiastic man giving him a ride in his glass-canopy Popemobile.

According to The Catholic News Service (CNS), the Vatican press hall identified the thrilled hitchhiker as Fr. Fabian Baez of Buenos Aires, pointing out that Pope Francis told his aides that the priest is “a great confessor.”

After travelling alongside the pope, the Argentinian was given special seating at the start of the audience and even had a brief chat with the head of the Catholic Church.
