The Pope’s Harley-Davidson Sold For How Much?!

Wow. We already knew that Pope Francis would be auctioning off the Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide that had been donated to him, and that the proceeds would go to help renovate a homeless shelter and soup kitchen run by the charity group Caritas Rome.

Pope Francis and the Chaput Shocker
