The Argentine Lottery Winner

Pope Francis is a huge fan of the Argentine soccer team San Lorenzo de Almagro. So much so that in 2008 he became an official member of the fan club. On March 13, the day his papacy was announced, the country's winning lottery number coincided with the four last numbers of his soccer membership. Team members are conviced this is a divine sign, and they will win this year's championship.

A Tweet That Predicted the Future

On February 11 Yolanda De Mena tweeted in Spanish "My boyfriend woke up at 4 a.m. last night saying that he had dreamt of a new Pope named 'Francis I' and that today Benedict resigned." The tweet has been re-tweeted more than 54,000 times.
