VATICAN CITY (AP) - Pope Francis has a new addition to his music collection, and it includes “Like a Virgin.”

Italy’s singing nun, Sister Cristina Scuccia, finally met Francis on Wednesday during his general audience. She presented him with a copy of her first CD, which features a remake of the Madonna hit.

Scuccia won the Italian edition of “The Voice” in June with a series of unadorned pop song performances, romping around the stage in a full habit.

While some privately questioned her behavior then, the Italian Bishops’ Conference went public with its criticism this fall when Scuccia included “Like a Virgin” on her first CD. The bishops said it was a commercial ploy.

Scuccia defended her decision and said the song was prayer-like.
