(Yahoo!News) Here’s something you might not have known: Pope Francis owns a Harley-Davidson. And he plans to auction off his hog to support organizations that help the homeless.

How in the world did his holiness come into possession of a Harley?

Earlier this year the pope gave a blessing to hundreds of Harley aficionados (and their rides) in St. Peter’s Square, where he was presented with one. Money raised from the auction will go toward a Roman hostel and soup kitchen.
