Pope Francis joins Harley-Davidson 110th birthday celebration
The biking culture came to the Vatican a fortnight ago for blessing. Pope Francis blessed a congregation of bikers on the occasion of the Harley Davidson’s 110th birthday. Hundreds of bikers in leather boots, vests and sporting tattoos converged at the open air mass in St. Peter’s Square to receive blessings from the Pontiff at a mass for Evangelium Vitae day in Vatican City.
The bikers also offered the Pope two white classic Harleys and leather jacket for use by the Vatican police force. Mark-Hans Richer, Chief Marketing Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company said, “Our promise to our customers is to offer them once-in-a-lifetime experiences that few other brands can fulfill,” said “Having our customers treated to the blessing today fulfills that promise of epic adventures.”
