Given current events it feels like the Cubs’ World Series win came two years ago instead of two weeks ago, but it’s still obviously fresh on the minds of Cubs fans.

Cubs fans such as Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich, who is at the Vatican this week to, ironically, become a Cardinal. While there, however, he took a break from all of that and presented Pope Francis with a Chicago Cubs cap and a signed baseball.

If you think this was cool, just wait until the Padres win something.
