Cubs fever has reached the Vatican.

After winning the World Series for the first time in 108 years, just about everyone has been hopping on the team’s bandwagon, and that includes the Pope. He was photographed with a Cubs hat and an autographed ball—presumably from the team—last week. The Archbishop of Chicago tweeted out the photo.

If only the Popemobile made an appearance at the Cubs’ victory parade. That would have put it over the top.
