While most members of Congress were hoping to shake Pope Francis’ hand or maybe even get a selfie, Rep. Bob Brady had his eye on the prize.
According to Regina Medina of the Daily News, Brady snatched the glass of water the Pope used during his address to the joint meeting.
Once he was backed in his office, the Congressman, his wife, and two staffers drank the same water that the Pontiff had.
“How many people do you know that drank out of the same glass as the pope?” Brady asked.
Apparently Senator Bob Casey, along with his wife and mother, decided just to stick their fingers in the water.
The Congressman bottled the remains and plans to use it to bless his four grandchildren and great-granddaughter.
The most surprising aspect of this story, though, may be that it shouldn’t come as a surprise at all. Brady did the same thing during President Obama’s inauguration in 2009.
