Brangelina are said to appreciate the Pope's message of tolerance, in particular, his stance on homosexuality.

According to Us Weekly, the newlyweds  have set up a private "VIP meet-and-greet at the Vatican with Pope Francis" and their head of security has already flown to Italy to do an initial security sweep.

Brad previously said that he doesn't' have a "great relationship" with religion, while Angelina is an atheist.

"For some people. I hope so, for them. For the people who believe in it, I hope so. There doesn’t need to be a God for me," she is quoted as saying. "There’s something in people that’s spiritual, that’s godlike. I don’t feel like doing things just because people say things, but I also don’t really know if it’s better to just not believe in anything, either.”
