Rio de Janeiro, Brazil - The new Vatican hex-messaging service has kicked into action with Pope Francis and Pope Benedict both tweeting like crazy about their influence with 'Him Upstairs'.
Online oddsmakers Aintgottaprayer.con has responded accordingly making retired Pope Joseph Ratzinger the 5/4 favorite tipster to predict Sunday's World Cup final score.
The nonagenarian Bavarian prophesises a 1-1 result after 90 minutes followed by a sudden death penalty shoot out with Germany victorious at five points to four.
Meanwhile up-and-coming replacement pontiff Pope Francis from Buenos Aires remains a 5/2 chance to get it right for an Argentina 10/1 thrashing of the German eleven.
Both spiritual leaders of the Romin Catlick Church are thrilled that decades of fervent prayer and supplication have been partially answered already with divine intervention fixing the Argentina v Germany final.
On Sunday the two men will be watching the game at home on TV in St Peter's Palace cocktail bar while downing a few dozen bottles of communion wine.
A live podcast of the pontiffs drinking and watching the box will be available on this website.
