Pope gives couple ultimate wedding gift: A selfie with his holiness

The Sideshow

Ellen who? A newly married couple scored the ultimate selfie when they snapped a shot with the one, the only, the grand poobah of Catholicism — his holiness Pope Francis.

The picture was tweeted out by reporter Edward Pentin.

This isn't the first time Francis has posed for a selfie with admirers. In 2013, the pope posed for picture with a group of grinning teens. The snapshot was declared to be the first papal selfie and further increased the pope's reputation as a pretty down-to-earth guy, who just happens to have a few heavenly connections.
