Dennis Rodman: En Route to the Vatican to Meet the New Pope!

by at . Comments

As the College of Cardinals decides on who will be the next Pope, one layman is determined to meet His Holiness and chart a global course for peace and prosperity.

Fresh off his "basketball diplomacy" trip to North Korea, NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman is en route to Vatican City with hopes of meeting the new pontiff.

On Tuesday, Rodman was en route to Rome with the goal of meeting the Catholic Church’s next leader, with the conclave underway inside the Sistine Chapel.

While it may be some time before white smoke billows out of the chapel’s chimney signaling the election of a new pope, Rodman is excited about it.

He said his recent meeting with reclusive North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would prove he was worthy of at least a meeting with the pontiff-elect.

“I want to be anywhere in the world that I’m needed,” Rodman told TMZ. “I want to spread a message of peace and love throughout the world.”

The former Chicago Bulls star said his “people” were in contact with the powers that be to arrange a meeting with the successor to Pope Benedict XVI.

”He wants Obama to do one thing: Call him,” Rodman told ABC’s This Week.

Claiming that he broke barriers in North Korea that no one else could, Rodman said he could also be the man to help craft plan of peace for the new pontiff.

Here's hoping?
