Pope Francis has wowed Catholic and non-Catholic audiences alike this week by wearing a very cool black leather jacket.
The Pope revealed his cool new jacket, like that sported by popular television character The Fonz, in a post-Easter address at the Apostolic palace.
“Just chill!” the pontiff declared from the famous balcony of his official residence, “This is a time for love and reflection and looking cool.”
Many pious attendees were said to have burst into tears at the sight of the very cool jacket.
“Followers of Christ must learn to weep and also look great in cool leather jackets,” the pontiff concluded.
The jacket has been touted as a sign of a Pope who is unafraid of taking a more serious and explicit line against looking uncool.
Liberal stalwarts of the church have been vocally impressed.
“Wowo! Look at his great jacket!”
The Pope’s fresh new look accompanies a radical suite of kind public actions and statements that mask his unfailing obedience to the most problematic parts of Catholic doctrine.
The Pope described the jacket as “really, very cool,” with “enough pockets for all of my cigarettes and hip-flasks.”
The pontiff is reportedly planning an evening of Wes Anderson films which “anyone can rock up to with a +1.”
The Pope was reached for comment, but just shouted “suck eggs!” as he sped off on his papal motorcycle.
