VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis now has a blue Chicago Cubs hat to go with his traditional white skull cap.

Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich presented Francis with the hat and what looks like a signed baseball, nearly two weeks after the Cubs won their first World Series since 1908.

Cupich shared a photo of Francis holding the items on Twitter:

Cupich is set to be made a cardinal by Francis later this week.

In advance of the World Series, Cupich of Chicago and Bishop Richard J. Lennon of Cleveland, whose Indians took the match-up all the way to the wire, made a friendly bet, with the loser donating food from a local restaurant to feed dozens of hungry people.

From Chicago, Cupich wagered enough deep-dish pizza and baked goods to feed more than 100 guests of the Bishop William M. Cosgrove Center in Cleveland, had the Chicago Cubs lost to the Indians.

Lennon, meanwhile, met the challenge by offering enough pierogi, kielbasa and sauerkraut, and green beans for a like number of guests at a Chicago Catholic Charities center.

“Both cities have waited an eternity for this moment,” Cupich said in a press release announcing the bet. “So while it will be a historic win for either side, we feel it’s only right to celebrate by giving back.”

In the end, both prelates decided to pay off on the bet, thereby ensuring that hungry people in each of the two cities benefited.
