Vatican City, Mar 6, 2020 / 10:41 am
Rolls Royce and Italian Luxury Living are no longer offering an exclusive meeting and Mass with Pope Francis to Rolls Royce owners who donate over $100,000 to the Catholic Church.
"The offer does not exist anymore," Ananda Gari of Italian Luxury Living told CNA by phone March 6.
Religion News Service reported March 5 that Rolls-Royce was offering its luxury car owners a chance to meet privately with Pope Francis, receive the Eucharist from the pope during a private Mass, and take an "exclusive" tour of the Vatican. The cost of the trip was reportedly $155,000, in addition to a suggested donation of 100,000 euros to the Holy See.
The RNS report said the offer was facilitated through tour operator Italian Luxury Living.
