He continued, “And then I found people who wanted to take pictures with me, which is very strange, during a trip to the Vatican with all this wonder and wanted to take pictures with me, which I didn’t get, but regardless, I did.

“I was very respectful and asked for permission what I thought would be okay. I would never want to do anything to disrespect someone’s culture. If I did, I apologize. It was not my intention. I paid for this privacy moment and made a nice donation to the church I love you. I’m sorry if I offended you.”
