Though I double-checked the Holy Father’s private audiences for more information, this curious headline about the General Audience from Vatican Information Service in the Bolletino stimulated in my mind one image after another:
CUBAN CROCODILE AT THE HOLY FATHER’S GENERAL AUDIENCE
Where is Vincenzo when we need him?
In other news, the Holy Father received also some of the cardinals-elect…
No… wait… that is an Italian Circus troop, which performed at the Audience.
It seems that the Holy Father always receives cardinals-elect in audience about this time of year. Last year, for example…
DOH! No, wait, that’s another circus troop.
I’d better stop while I’m behind.
