The PSG No. 30 jersey, with the inscription “With great love,” was presented to Francis by French PM Jean Castex who had come to the Vatican on an official visit.
“Dear brother, thank you for the T-shirt you sent me, for your dedication and your simplicity. Thank you for your steadfastness. Stay the same. God bless you, you can always rely on me. I am glad that you are not arrogant,” Francis said to the footballer.
