Pope Francis makes a "pit stop" at Burger King

SANTA CRUZ, Bolivia — Pope Francis used a Burger King restaurant in Bolivia for a quick change of clothes.

Francis had just spent more than 30 minutes in his popemobile, waving to thousands lined up on the streets of Santa Cruz. With hundreds of thousands of Catholics waiting, he needed a place to dress for the Mass he would celebrate in the city’s Christ the Redeemer square.

The manager of the Burger King, which was closed for the papal visit, said the pope’s entourage asked for help, so Francis was ushered in to put on his vestments before walking to the nearby altar and beginning Mass.

Before the Mass ended, Burger King had put a post on Facebook thanking the pope “for choosing the BK restaurant as your sacristy.”
