Burger King becomes Pope’s changing room


He made an ad-hoc stop at the restaurant in Santa Cruz, Bolivia to change into his vestments for a Mass.

Pope Francis took a slight detour to the Burger King fast-food restaurant on Thursday to change his clothing before saying Mass in Santa Cruz at Christ the Redeemer square.

The store was closed to customers for the Mass, so the Pontiff believed it was an appropriate place to change his vestments, according to the Associated Press.

The staff at the restaurant were apparently more than happy to assist the Pope. “They even covered the windows with white curtains, to give his holiness privacy as he donned his robe and miter,” according to the New York Post.


Pope Francis is known for his humility and simple lifestyle, so it might come as no surprise that he would deem Burger King an acceptable place to change.

Burger King was thrilled with the Pope’s decision. “Welcome Pope Francis, thank you for choosing the restaurant BK El Cristo as your sacristy. Burger King Bolivia receives you with open arms,” the restaurant  brand posted on Facebook.
