When the Holy Father travels to Turkey, he will not be received there as a Head of State. There are consequences for protocol.
It was also announced recently that the Pope’Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚™s welcome has been downgraded to a second-class protocol instead of a first-class protocol, reported Turkish agency Hurriyet. The ceremonial differences between the two protocols mean that there will not be 21 cannon shots fired and that fewer soldiers will be present for his arrival.
The Pope will also stay at the Vatican Embassy rather than in the Glass House in the President’Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚™s ÇÃ‚â€¡ankaya KöÃ…Å¸Ã‚Å¸k, which is usually set aside for foreign heads of state.
So… the Pope won’t be living in the "Glass House".
Perhaps the Holy Father will feel free to throw a few stones as a result?
