In what he will surely recall as one of the most exciting events of his life, Pope Francis had the chance to rub elbows with two of the Lord’s most perfect creations on Sunday: George Clooney and his wife, the human rights lawyer Amal Clooney. From People:

The couple, who attended the pontiff’s Un Muro o Un Ponte Seminary at Paul VI Hall, were also on hand so that George could be awarded a medal for his work with Francis’ Scholas Occurrentes, an International Organization of Pontifical Right that connects technology with arts and sports, according to its website.


Salma Hayek and Richard Gere were also at the Vatican for the event, which really makes you wonder: Did Francis only take this gig for the star-studded hobnobbing?

It was only about a year or two ago that I realized that “Topher” was a diminutive of/nickname for “Christopher”
