The Vatican is getting closer to solving the mystery of who 'liked' a bikini model's photo from Pope Francis' official Instagram account.

It's doubtful that the head of the Catholic Church 'liked' the naughty photo himself.

It's more likely that a Vatican official forgot to log out of the Pope's account before logging into his own page to browse the IG profiles of scantily clad models.

A sharp-eyed Twitter user spotted the Pope's 'like' and the post went viral on social media.

Barstool Sports captioned the freaky photo: "Pope Francis is horny as hell."

While Pope Francis is staying out of the controversy, Brazilian model Natalia is enjoying her newfound fame. It's not everyday that the Pope gives an Instagram escort his blessing.

"At least I'm going to heaven," Natalia joked.

Pope Francis kissing feet

Photos of Pope Francis kissing the feet of young male inmates at a detention center are drawing mixed reactions. Partly because the pope broke from longstanding tradition and also kissed the feet of 2 women detainees as part of the pontiff's Easter celebrations. The papal tradition of washing and kissing feet is usually reserved for kissing the feet of other male priests. Women have never been included in the papal tradition until Pope Francis' era. Apparently Pope Francis has been routinely washing and kissing the feet of the poor and downtrodden for years.

Watch the video after the break.
