Lamborghini Tried To Buy Their Way Into Heaven By Donating A Custom Lambo To El Papa

Last week, his holiness, Pope Francis, who’s the first Latino pope ever (air horn 3x), got a custom-made, special edition Lamborghini Huracán RWD.

The new Pope-Mobile was donated directly to Pope Francis by Lamborghini. The company gifted the pope a $200,000 whip with a V10 engine that can produce a horsepower of up to 600 . At top speeds of 200 miles per hour, the Pope could theoretically cross all of Vatican City in under a minute.

The Lambo was handmade to custom specifications.

The car was tricked out in pure, heavenly-white with halo-gold accents as a tribute to the Vatican City flag. It was designed at Lamborghini’s custom body shop called “Ad Personam,” which is Latin for “on an individual basis.” That name seems fitting as members of the clergy frequently use Latin during mass. Does “in nomeni patri et fili spiritus sancti” sound familiar? That’s Latin, baby.

Before drag racing around Vatican City, the Pope and his entourage had to bless the new whip.

Talk about Lamborghini Mercy! Kanye West would be proud. Also, it seems like the Pope runs with a bigger clique than all of G.O.O.D. Music.

Of course, the custom paint job wouldn’t be complete without a little graffiti by his holiness.

Nothing more baller than signing a Lambo in permanent marker. I wonder what his tag name is?

Don’t worry, you won’t see the Pope zooming past you anytime soon. The church will be auctioning off the supercar to raise money for various charities.

Although it has permanent marker on the hood, and doesn’t run on holy water, it’s still a pretty cool car for any collector. Funds raised from the auction will go to several charitable efforts, including helping rebuild Christian communities destroyed by the Islamic State group in Iraq.

Looks like Pope Francis is definitely #blessed. ???

The Pope Thinks That Mexico’s Struggle With Violence Is Because Of The Devil And La Virgen De Guadalupe

The Pope Thinks That Mexico’s Struggle With Violence Is Because Of The Devil And La Virgen De Guadalupe

Pope Francis was in Mexico recently and spoke about everything from abortion and femicide to the border wall and standing up to Trump.

But it’s his comments about Mexico’s struggle with violence and conflict that have everybody talking.

In a recent interview with Noticieros Televisa, Pope Francis blamed the country’s rising violence on the devil taking out its anger on the country.

The Pope offered an explanation for the violence and conflict that Mexico faces, saying that “the devil has beef” with Mexico. He says it’s because of the frequent persecution that Catholics faced in the country over the years.

He added that “Christian persecutions weren’t as virulent in other countries in America,” he told Noticieros Televisa, according to El Universal. “Why in Mexico? Something happened there… Otherwise, you can’t explain it.”

According to the Pope, the devil’s problem with Mexico also stems from the country’s immense admiration for la Virgen de Guadalupe.

Translation: @Pontifex_es still things that the devil has beef with Mexico because in Mexico, there is la Virgen de Guadalupe.

This actually goes back to a 2015 interview where the Pope again blamed Mexicans for worshipping la Virgen. He went on to say this is why the devil punishes Mexico.

Obviously, his remarks have caused quite a bit of drama in one of the world’s most Catholic countries.

Translation: He has to blame our bullshit on something.

People across Twitter are either offended and annoyed that the Pope would simplify something that is so complicated, while others are upset that their religious leader suggests they face an issue with the devil.

Like I don’t think anyone wants to hear that their country is being punished by the devil – especially not from the church’s number 1 leader.

Though many heard the news and couldn’t help but laugh.

The majority of people across social media just couldn’t beleive that their county’s struggles were being reduced to such a simple explanation.

Many wanted to hear detailed plans or suggestions from Pope Francis on how best to combat the issues the country faces but, instead, were left disappointed.

And some suggested the devil himself was probably having a good laugh at all of this.

Translation: Now we understand everything. The devil has beef with Mexico, says the Pope.

And one Twitter user admitted he agrees with Pope Francis.

Translation: “I also think that ‘the devil has beef with Mexico.’ Well, at least with my Chivas.”

Or at least that the devil has beef with his futbol team, Las Chivas. And with a season like they had last year, we would probably have to agree.

The Pope Is On Twitter And He Is Dropping A Lot Of Knowledge On All Of His Devoted Followers

@Pontifex / Twitter

So it’s a chill day at work and you’re sitting there scrolling through Twitter…when *gasp* you discover the Pope – yes, that Pope – has a Twitter account. Wait…what?! Is this for real? How did we not know this? Not only does he have a Twitter feed but he’s got like 18 million more followers than you do. Naturally, you start scrolling only to realize the Pope is woke af!

From calling out world leaders for their failure to secure peace in the world or to combat climate change to calling for the protection of the weak and poor among us – the Pope’s Twitter feed is where I go now for some serious feels.

He’s doling out some pretty sage advice.

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

Okay, Pope Francis. I see you trying to get us all to get along. I feel like this is something my mom has said to me a lot when I was a kid. Like, be nice to your primos y hermanos because they are going to be with you in the future.

His tweets are literally things that our tías have been telling us for years.

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

It is like she is writing his tweets or he is getting his inspo from her. I am 100 percent sure my tía told me this just last weekend when we were at dinner.

He basically put Trump on blast for his inhumane treatment of refugees and immigrants.

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

It is known that the Pope and President Trump have a little feud going on. Mainly Trump has a feud and likes to react to things that the Pope says because he might feel like he is in the wrong, but who knows.

He even took a stand on climate change and put the blame on humanity.

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

Our family isn’t in the business of discussing this but if they did, it would sound like this. We all know that our family loves to talk about people and how they aren’t behaving. It is their favorite pastime.

He also channels that one prima we all have…

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

You know the one. She’s always telling you to let Jesus into your heart and trying to get you to go to church with her.

And apparently, Mary was the very first social influencer.

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

There are so many major influencers out there but if the Pope gets behind you and calls you the most influential woman in history then that’s it – you are.

He knows how to help the gente spread the love.

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

When the Pope speaks…people listen.

We can all stand to be reminded of this, am I right?

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

The Pope tries to make peace between all sorts of groups of people and here he is using some of that meta-advice for something simple: listen to your family, friends, partners, co-workers and others. #ListeningSkills

And he throws down for the abuelos.

Love you nana!

Mami has got to be following the Pope on Twitter.

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

This is straight out of my mom’s mouth. Pero like how did she know the Pope was on Twitter before me…?

And you know your mom always pulled this out when there’s some family drama.

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

Of course, she would never admit to having drama in our familia but when others came with chisme about theirs, this is totally the type of advice my mom would give to friends. Think Virginia de la Mora from Casa de las Flores.

This is some heavy advice but oh my god so true!

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

Why didn’t I see this Tweet when I needed it most?! My tears irrigate life? Amazing!

Is it just me or is the Pope throwing shade at all the thots on social media?

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

He does not hold back with what he thinks about the people. Honestly, if anyone on this planet should be allowed to judge, it is the man who gave his entire life to the church.

Alright…so maybe the Trump/Pope feud is a real thing?

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

This is definitely some not-so-veiled shade towards the U.S. president and his tendency to lash out at anyone who disagrees with him.

Pretty sure we’re all thinking the same…

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

But like he’s the Pope who leads a community of more than a billion people and can get away with calling out world leaders.

Sometimes you can’t sugarcoat the truth.

Credit: @Pontifex / Twitter

If he isn’t channeling my mom every time she steps into my room…

If this isn’t mis papas trying to inspire me every time I start doubting what I’m doing with my life.

Mijo, work hard and you can do anything you want to do!
