VATICAN CITY – Astronauts from the International Space Station gave Pope Francis his own blue jump suit on Friday but to distinguish him from ordinary planetary pilgrims like themselves they added a white cape.

“Since clothes make the man, we thought we’d have a flight suit like ours made for you,” Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli told the pope at a meeting in the Vatican also attended by four other Space Station veterans – three Americans and one Russian.

“OK, and you will plan my trip,” joked the 81-year-old pontiff, clearly enjoying the exchange.
