Motorcycles, swearing and selfies, oh my! Pope Francis continues to prove that the head of the Catholic Church can be full of surprises.

His Holiness recently stopped to snap a selfie with two newlyweds attending the weekly general audience at the Vatican, reports The Huffington Post. Edward Pentin, a ZENIT reporter, Tweeted out the smiling shot of the lucky pair to the pope and the rest of the Web.
