The man known as Philly Jesus is hoping to get close enough to Pope Francis to snap a moment that will last forever.
“When the Pope comes, me and him, we’re gonna get a good selfie together and I’m going to take him for a cheesesteak,” Michael Grant, aka Philly Jesus, told NBC10.
He might not have a chance to treat the pontiff to a Philly food favorite while the Holy See is visiting Philadelphia this weekend, but Grant might get a chance to grab that special photo. Grant said he plans to be along the Parkway throughout the weekend of World Meeting of Families events in hopes of getting his moment with the Pope.

If the selfie happens, Grant said it would be “epic.”
In the meantime, Grants seems to be having a good time riding his own version of the popemobile.
