Pope Francisco blessed yesterday, at the Vatican, thousands of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and their owners for the 110th anniversary of the American manufacturer.
Prior to the mass, celebrated in St. Peter’s Square, the Pope’s prayers were lost due to the noise caused by the sound of motorcycle engines.
The Harley-Davidson Company, based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, gave the Pope, earlier this week, two white classic motorcycles for the use of the police forces of the Vatican.
The vatican spokesman pointed out that it’s probable that there could be catholic bikers among the crowd, and that they are all welcome to the pope’s mass.
For its part, the Italian group of Associations for the Defense of the Environment and Consumer Rights, will file charges against the Harley-Davidson concentration in Rome for the inconvenience created by turning the city into a jungle.
