Longoria shared a picture on Twitter and Instagram of herself with the Pope. In the picture, the actress is seen grasping the Pope’s hands. Naturally, she’s beaming with pride and happiness during the meeting. Alongside the photo, taken at the Vatican, Longoria write, “Praying with Pope Francis #Blessed #Literally.” She also added the praying hands emoji in the post, which she shared with her nearly 10 million social media followers.
Wednesday’s meeting with the Pope is not the first time the actress has brushed with the beloved religious leader. Back in September 2015, Longoria took her sister to the White House to meet Pope Francis. It turns out the meeting had been a dream of the star’s sister. “A yr ago I asked my sister Liza ‘who do you most want to meet in the world?’ She said ‘the Pope’. And here we are,” Longoria captioned the Instagram shot taken then of the two women seated on the White House lawn.
