During a recent interview with Italian radio station RTL 102.5, pop music icon Madonna shared that she’d like to meet the Pope for dinner sometime, if he were up for it, according to Vatican Insider.

Commending Pope Francis for his progressive response when recently asked his thoughts on the gay community (“Who am I to judge?”), Madonna told journalist Luca Dondoni that she’d like to meet him, despite having been excommunicated by the Catholic Church three times in the past. 

“God bless Pope Francis,” said Madonna. “We’ve got to meet. A plate of pasta, a bottle of good wine. Do I have a chance?”


Pope Francis, who has previously confirmed that he is “not a teetotaler” and that he drinks wines from all over the world, also decided not long ago that he would open the farm at his summer residence of Castel Gandolfo to the public for the first time in its history, leading to speculation that visitors might get to sample some of the farm’s produce.
