Melania has been regularly compared to Jackie Kennedy for her fashion sense. Now the first ladies have another important trait in common: their religion.

After spending the morning with Pope Francis, touring the Sistine Chapel, praying at the feet of the Virgin Mary, and visiting sick children at the Vatican Children’s Hospital, it was announced that Melania is a practicing Roman Catholic. This makes Melania the first Catholic first lady since Jackie Kennedy.

The subject of Melania’s religion has been a mysterious one. The mystery may be rooted in her childhood upbringing in Soviet-controlled Slovenia. According to the Daily Mail, who originally broke the story:

It’s unclear when Mrs. Trump became a Catholic. The president is a life-long Presbyterian, and they were married in a Florida Episcopal church.

Growing up as the daughter of a Communist Party member in rural Slovenia, her family maintained the outward appearances of being atheists, according to people in her childhood village of Sevnica who spoke to DailyMail.com in late 2015.

Accordingly, Melania and her sister were not baptized and did not make their First Holy Communion with other children their age.

It’s still not clear when Mrs. Trump was baptized into the Catholic faith.

The revelation brings to light why the first lady had a rosary blessed by the Pope yesterday and also why she was beaming throughout the day at the Vatican. The first lady posted glowingly about her visit with the Pope on Twitter:

Most beautiful…

Melania also spent time at a children’s hospital, speaking, taking selfies, and coloring with children. One of those children, a young Greek boy, needed a heart transplant. Hours after the first lady’s visit, a small miracle occurred: It was announced that a donor had been located.

Melania tweeted the happy development:

Melania claims her home church as the historic Episcopal Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida, where the Trumps are regular worshipers. The first lady has posted about her time in prayer there on Instagram:

Melania also stunned many viewers when she opened a Trump rally with the Lord’s Prayer in February. After today’s revelation, the context of the prayer and her glowing visit with the Pope are put into perspective.

The last five days have seen the first family in a wide range of religious, spiritual, and holy sites. The Wednesday visit to the Vatican caps off a whirlwind tour of Saudi Arabia, Jerusalem’s Old City, the Western Wall, and Bethlehem. Melania’s religious revelation is a fitting development along this reflective tour.

Let’s also not forget how truly fascinating it is that a child, born under the oppressive boot of atheistic communism, can grow up to be an openly practicing Catholic first lady.
