A Washington, D.C., resident has created a petition asking Pope Francis to bless the beleaguered Metro system.
Noah Rosenbeck wrote to the pope:
“Dear Pope Francis,
Our Metro system is having some troubles. All of DC would be grateful if you could find the time to bless it during your upcoming stay. Maybe a Papal Blessing is just what it needs.”
As of 1 p.m., 500 people had signed the petition on change.org.
Supporter Jack Jenkins said, “Y’all. We need to sign this Petition to get the pope to bless the DC Metro system so it actually works: https://www.change.org/p/pope-francis-get-the-pope-to-bless-the-dc-metro-system-so-it-actually-work.”
Caroline Lee Smith quoted Rosenbeck and tweeted, “At this point I’m willing to try anything.”
Pope Francis will make his way to D.C. to meet President Barack Obama.
