Martinez-Brocal tweeted a black-and-white photo of the visit, captioned in Spanish that translates to: “Pope, at the record store in Rome,” according to a translation from the Catholic News Agency. Newsweek, Wednesday (12/1/2022).

Martinez-Brocal also shared a 24-second video of the Pope exiting the store and getting into a Fiat car.

Martinez-Brocal reported Pope Francis went inside and stayed for about 12 minutes talking to the shop owner.

According to Reuters, a Vatican spokesman said Pope Francis had gone to the shop to bless him, as it had recently been renovated.

The owner, Letizia, along with her daughter and son-in-law, are longtime friends of the pope, says the Catholic News Agency’s translation of the La Stampa report.
