A little divine intervention for the Maple Leafs courtesy of the Vatican and a Toronto Cardinal.

Toronto Archbishop Thomas Collins let his Toronto pride shine through Thursday, sporting a personalized Toronto Maple Leafs jersey in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican.

“It’s safe to say there are more than a few Toronto Maple Leafs fans in the pews of our parishes in the Archdiocese of Toronto,” said Collins from Rome on Thursday. “This is a fun way to let  them, and all Catholics in our diocese, know that I am thinking of them at this time. I am truly proud and humbled to serve them all.”
