Pop singer Madonna reached out to Pope Francis on Twitter asking for a meeting.
The singer’s parents raised her Catholic, however, many of her past artistic works blaspheme Jesus and the Catholic Church. She is also notorious for her immodest and sexually explicit music and videos.

She explained in her post that she believes the Church excommunicated her, saying her last confession occurred “a few decades” ago. She requested a meeting, possibly insinuating a return to her faith.
Could this tweet be sincere?
Here’s her post below:
The tweet reads, “Hello @Pontifex Francis —I’m a good Catholic. I Swear! I mean I don’t Swear! It’s been a few decades since my last confession. Would it be possible to meet up one day to discuss some important matters ? I’ve been ex communicated 3 times. It doesn’t seem fair. Sincerely, Madonna.”
Several priests responded to her request for a meeting.
Fr. Matthew Schneider of the Legionaries of Christ offered her help with the matter.
Here’s his post below:
“I don’t know if the Pope himself can meet with you, but I can find you a priest near where you are to help you,” Fr. Matthew Schneider wrote. “Just DM me if you need help or have questions.”
Fr. Guillermo Serra, another priest with the Legionaries of Christ, also responded to the singer.
“Hi Madonna, I am a Catholic priest. Do you know what excommunication means?” Fr. Serra asked. “Just checking…Praying for you!”
After several users criticized the priest for his comment, he clarified his words:
“Actually, my comment is a positive one,” Fr. Serra responded. “I am not sure if she knows what it means. I’ve met many people who think they are excommunicated, but were not.”
Fr. Jorge Enrique Mújica, also a priest with the Legionaries of Christ, offered Madonna encouragement.
“Madonna, if your heart needs peace, God has already put in it the first step to recover it,” Father Mújica wrote. “It is never too late to return to Jesus, who loves you. You are his daughter by baptism in the Catholic faith. I pray for you.”
