Pope Francis greets singer Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler

“God bless you.”

It wasn't the end of a concert, but rather of the pope's public catechesis. Upon concluding, the Holy Father was greeted by Sting and the singer's wife, Trudie Styler. 

“Thank you very much for your work.”

Styler was visibly moved. Pope Francis asked them to pray for him, and she assured they already did. 

“Pray for me, don't forget.”

“We pray for you all the time. We love you.”

When the pope thanked Sting for his work, he was probably referring to the singer's contribution to the “Giudizio Universale” spectacle, which is shown mere feet from the Vatican and allows pilgrims to explore the history of the Sistine Chapel and Bible.
