77-year-old motorsports legend, 1969 Indy 500 winner, 1978 F1 world champion Mario Andretti was honored and overjoyed to meet Pope Francis, posting this image on Twitter.

Mario apparently offered the pontiff a ride in IndyCar's two-seater next year, to which Pope Francis answered:

"I'd love it Mr. Andretti, but you'll have to come to confession first!"
