This is pope Francis’ glass of water.
U.S. Rep. Bob Brady of Pennsylvania swiped Pope Francis’ leftover water — and drank it — after the pontiff’s address to a joint session of Congress.
He wasn’t greedy, though. The Democrat and devout Catholic shared the goods with his wife and two staffers…
After the address, according to Philadelphia Daily News, Rep. Brady “calmly headed to the lectern and delicately picked up [the] glass, holding it by two fingers, one at the bottom of the glass and one at the rim.”
He told CNN, “I’m considering it as holy water. … I mean, the pope drank out of it, the pope handled it … It’s good enough for me.” As we understand it though, technically it’s not holy water since the pope didn’t bless it.
