Pope Francis was presented with a Houston Astros rosary from St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Church.

May the Houston Astros have a blessed season!

Father Norbert from Saint Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Church in Spring gave Pope Francis some unique gifts, including a Houston Astros rosary, during a trip to Italy.

The church flooded during Hurricane Harvey.

The pope was presented with an ornament depicting the church's flooded sanctuary, a pen made of wood from an altar server's chair taken from the flooded church and the rosary.

The church says you can buy the same Astros rosary at Annunciation Catholic Church next to Minute Maid Park.
