Pope Francis accidentially tweeted out support for the NFL's New Orleans Saints on Sunday to his millions of followers. As The Daily Wire reports:

Pope Francis wrote Sunday on his official Twitter account, “Today we give thanks to the Lord for our new #Saints. They walked by faith and now we invoke their intercession.”

The Pope was was giving thanks to five new saints that were canonized on Sunday morning, sending out the celebratory message to his 18.1 million followers on the platform, where he goes by the handle “Pontifex.”

But on Twitter, a New Orleans logo emoji showed up next to “Saints” — as in the National Football League’s New Orleans Saints...

 

You’ll be shocked to hear that Twitter went wild with the rogue emoji.

 
  Was the tweet merely a holy blunder, or is it possible that Pope Francis is actually an avid NFL fan?
