Ecuador Built Pope Francis a Holy Bathroom

1 minute read

Where does the Pope poop?

In a bathroom that includes an Asian-style rug and a painting of Jesus — when he’s in Ecuador at least.

Officials in the South American country built a spacious bathroom special for Pope Francis in the port city of Guayaquil, a stop on the Pope’s South American tour which began on Sunday. The bathroom also includes a large toilet, a shower and a large mirror.

The pope celebrated Mass at a park in Guayaquil Monday with more than 1 million people in attendance. The Argentinean pontiff is the first South American pope and is also due to visit Bolivia and Paraguay during his tour.
