Francisco, the unlikely customer of a record store in Rome


By surprise, the Pope visited, this Tuesday, a record store in the center of Rome.

According to the Vatican News portal, Francis is “an old client of the place, which he already frequented when he was still Archbishop of Buenos Aires”.

The Pope blessed the store and received, in exchange, an LP copy of classical music, on vinyl.

The Spanish Vaticanist Javier Martínez-Brocal, of the agency ‘Rome Reports’, published on his Twitter account images of the Pope, leaving the place.

The owner said that Francisco is “an old customer” and that Tuesday’s visit was “beautiful” and “full of humanity”.

The Vatican portal recalls other visits by the Pope to the Italian capital: on September 4, 2015, Francis visited an optician, also in the historic center of Rome, to change the frames of his glasses; on December 21, 2016, the reason was orthopedic and the chosen store on the outskirts of the Vatican.
