They paint a line down the middle of the Vatican, and each gets one side.

Add an Archbishop to the cast and call it 2 1/2 popes.

It sounds like the setup for a sitcom that runs exactly six episodes, then is mocked twenty years later by Brad Jones.

I thought that's technically a mantle, not a cape. A cape goes past the shoulders.

I was told he would have no clothes.

That one's my favorite. There's gotta be a list somewhere of sitcoms with the nosy neighbor trope.

Well, Benedict does get to keep his handsome secretary...

He will be accompanied by a small staff, including his personal secretary, Archbishop Georg Ganswein.

"It is a 10 minute walk from Casa Santa Maria, the Vatican residence where Pope Francis has chosen to live since his election, having rejected the option of living in the much larger and more lavish papal apartments."

Have to admit, I think this guy's alright, as far as popes go. Only time will tell, of course, but that's a pretty good sign.

What? vs. the untold billions of dollars the catholic church is hoarding? or the untold riches it has ripped from 3rd world peoples in the form of tithes?  Not to mention the kid farking.

Not ripping on you, but I've heard the "he's so pious and lives such a simple life" story far too often... especially when dealing with the Catholic church which he runs and has been a part of his whole life.

Everything I've read about him so far makes me think that while I certainly disagree with him on a lot (duh, the pope will never be a liberal atheist), they picked a Good One when they chose him.

Actually, the Archbishop will be working for both of them. Francis days, Benedict nights, IIRC. So yes, 2 1/2 Popes.

That's kind of on the older news side.

Did you hear where he kissed the feet of prisoners and women, the first time for the Holy Thursday (before Easter) ritual? Because it mimics the ritual of Jesus bathing the feet of his disciples, tradition held that only men could participate in the ceremony.

/against my own will and judgments, I must admit. I like this Pope.
