The jersey, which features Jackson’s number, has “Francis” on the back and was autographed by coach John Harbaugh and the NFL Most Valuable Player front-runner.
Baltimore Archbishop William Lori, who presented Pope Francis with the jersey, said, “The pope, of course, he’s a big soccer fan, but the pope gave us a thumbs-up. [It] got a big smile out of him … it was a really happy moment.”
