“When are you going to jail?” Francis jokingly asked the young, unnamed French journalist, who confided that he was both nervous and confused about his upcoming marriage, TASS journalist Vera Shcherbakova reports

The pope spoke briefly with some of his aides before presenting the man with two boxes filled with rosary beads. “This is to deal with confusion,” the pope advised.

The pope regularly holds informal conversations with his press pool and welcomes each journalist personally, with gift exchanges and brief, one-on-one chats. The pope also grants blessings to pregnant journalists or those with special requests for family members and loved-ones. 

Francis is due to celebrate mass in Bangkok’s National Stadium on Thursday evening, despite the fact the country of 65 million boasts a Catholic community of just 380,000. He departs for Japan on Saturday.
