Pope Francis gives New Orleans Saints unexpected boost on Twitter
Oct. 13, 2019
The New Orleans Saints got an unexpected — and probably unintentional — backer for their game at Jacksonville.
Pope Francis, the head of the Catholic Church, included the Saints' Twitter logo in a tweet Sunday morning — one New Orleans football fans took as a good omen for their team.
"Today we give thanks to the Lord for our new #Saints. They walked by faith and now we invoke their intercession," the Pope tweeted after canonizing five new saints at a mass at Vatican City.
The hashtag and capitalization of Saints added the Fleur de Lis, the emblem associated with the Saints and worn on the team's helmets.
