Most raffle prizes come in the shape of a box of chocolates or unwanted perfumes; however for 43 lucky winners, they'll be getting something with a papal seal of approval.
Instead of selling his gifts on eBay like many at Christmas have done, Pope Francis will be raffling off 13 luxury items and 30 "consolation" prizes, including a Panama hat, to raise money for the poor.
For 10 euros a ticket ($11.78), individuals were given the opportunity to enter the raffle from November until Wednesday. The number of people who have entered remains unknown.
The 13 luxury prizes include an Illy IperEspresso machine, which can cost $595; a Sony Camcorder, which will set you back $461; four bicycles and a JBI Wi-Fi dock, which have a high price of $999.95. The consolation prizes are yet unnamed.
If you wanted to get your hands on one of the coveted prizes, it would be easier if you lived near the Vatican. The tickets could only be bought in the city-state, including the Vatican Pharmacy and the Vatican Museums.
Pope Francis has been named as the fourth 'most powerful person in the world by Forbes, only being upstaged by Vladimir Putin, Barack Obama and Xi Jinping.
Francis was named as one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people of 2014, described in the list as "a moral leader in word and deed" by Obama.
Obama added that the pope is "bearing, the gestures at once simple and profound—embracing the sick, ministering to the homeless, washing the feet of young prisoners—that have inspired us all."
