Rep. Bob Brady (D-PA) drinking from the same glass Pope Francis used while addressing Congress

WASHINGTON — A Pennsylvania Congressman collected a one of a kind souvenier during Pope Francis’ visit to the Capitol.

While addressing Congress, the pope paused to take a drink of water.

When he left the room, the glass got left behind.

That’s when Rep. Bob Brady slipped through the crowd and grabbed it.

He then took it to his office and drank from it.

His wife and two staff members drank from it too.

He also let Senator Bob Casey, his wife, and his mother dip their fingers into the water.

Brady is now keeping the water in a bottle, so he can bless his grandchildren with it.

He told CNN that he also stole a glass from President Obama.
