Pope Francis has a Super Bowl ad this year. Here it is.
A Vatican spokesman said the message, in which the Pope hopes the Super Bowl will be a "sign of peace, friendship and solidarity," will be played at NRG Stadium in Houston either before the game or during the first quarter.
This is the first time Pope Francis has made a Super Bowl message. He's tweeted out messages for the Olympics and soccer's World Cup in the past.
The World Cup allowed people from different countries and religions to come together. May sport always promote the culture of encounter.— Pope Francis (@Pontifex) July 12, 2014
Here's a past World Cup tweet.
