There was a certain charm about that occasion, the two young children, the doves that kept flying back inside, the late Holy Father being amused by things going wrong. But yes, that thought t thought also struck on that cold January morning, let it be hoped that a head cold is not the result.
Now, Fr. Z – God can protect anyone from anything, if He so desires. Our beloved John Paul the Great is not gone on account of a bird, I am certain. Rather, he has left us because Our Lord pulled his time card.
I too loved that moment. It was very moving to see the late Holy Father express such joyful emotion in the midst of his immense physical suffering. He did the same when in the presence of children many times. Great pictures!

But puuuuleeeeeese, don’t make me leave the Vatican.
BTW, I just learned that an old friend, a fellow Convittore and a very good man, has become the chaplain to the Swiss guard.
