Always the irreverent comedian, Francis says ‘whisky is the true holy water!’

Tony Kearney, the director, whose company Solus Productions made the one-hour observational documentary, Priest School, followed the seminarians over 18 months from 2018.
He said: “We filmed the students meeting the Pope in the Apostolic Palace. One of them was tasked with giving the Pope a bottle of malt, because they know he likes whisky.

“He was really down-to-earth with them all, and when they handed him the bottle, instead of just handing it to his assistant as he normally would with a gift, he held it up and said ‘questa e la vera acqua santa’, which means ‘this is the real holy water’. He guffawed with laughter and it was a real ice-breaker and put everyone at ease.”

  1. This pope is definitely the Antichrist and people continue to let him do whatever he wants. Why are none of the bishops or Cardinals standing up against him? Wait I know some that have but still nothing is happening and he is constantly using blasphemy against our Lord and Jesus Christother Mary our blessed Virgin? He is obviously an agent of the UN world elite who has to be Jewish and not Catholic. The Catholic Church is over now I hate to say this and will never be saved until Jesus comes. The modern changes will only continue because people have been blind and deaf to Jesus Christ and His words.
