For many, meeting the Pope is a once in a lifetime opportunity… stealing his glass of water and drinking out of it? Priceless.

As he addressed the U.S Congress on Thursday, Pope Francis kept some H2O by his side. When Congressman Bob Brady saw an opportunity to swipe the glass, he didn’t hesitate. Brady told the Philadelphia Daily News:

How many people do you know that drank out of the same glass as the pope?

His wife and two of his co-workers also drank from the divine cup.

Meanwhile, Pope Francis is scheduled to meet with inmates at a Pennsylvania prison this Sunday before saying Mass over an expected crowd of 1.5 million. His historic visit to the U.S. will come to a close thereafter.

Did you get to see the Pope while he was in town?
