This Wednesday (24), Maria Beltrão used social media to show that she personally met Pope Francis. On a visit to the Vatican, the presenter fulfilled her dream of talking to the pontiff and taking the opportunity to deliver an unusual gift. Through a publication on Instagram, the presenter of É de Casa shared the moment when she gives the priest a box of brigadiers, next to her daughter, Ana, and her husband, Luciano Saldanha.
“The day I met the Pope,” wrote the communicator. Maria Beltrão asked the É de Casa team for permission to participate in remote program agenda meetings, as it was a dream to meet the pontiff.
“I was invited to go to Pipoca da Ivete (Sangalo) this week, but I will have the opportunity to meet Pope Francis. It was something I had been trying for a long time. I got it with a very friendly priest. I just didn’t say ‘topo’ to Veveta, because I wouldn’t trade her for anyone, just the Pope”, explained the presenter to Quem.
“This is a personal project of mine. I am a practicing Catholic and I have many things to be thankful for. I had a dream of meeting Pope Francis. I wanted to meet Benedict XVI too, but I didn’t have the opportunity. 24. I cried for half an hour (when I learned) that I would have the opportunity to greet the Pope. I thought I would just see him.”
