  11. Tim Ferguson says:

    Benedict XVI has crossed the Rubricon

  12. Romulus says:

    “Two years ago in 2005, a crack ecclesial unit was locked in the Sistine chapel with the dean of the College of Cardinals, to clean up crimes they didn’t commit. That man promptly emerged from this maximum security conclave to head the See of Rome. Today, still disdained by theological “progressives”, he and his assistants survive as soldiers of Christ. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can call on… The B-Team.”

  13. Vincenzo: You did it again!

  14. John Harden says:

    The Pope prays for all priests to once again wear a cassock.

  19. Le Renard says:

    Welcome to the real world, Monsieur Ricard!

  25. Maureen says:

    It’s like some kind of super-Catholic Marlboro man ad.

    They’ll let you be a member

  35. Al says:

    Papa Benedetto: Fr. Bonasera… Fr. Bonasera! Why, why didn’t you come to me before this? If you had come to me before this, even now, the scum who did this to your liturgy would be suffering even as your parishioners are suffering.

  36. Anthony says:

    “Yeah, I got friends in Brooklyn, you gotta problem wit dhat?”

  39. Curious says:

    Not a caption. Does anyone know who the priest to the left of His Holiness (right side of picture) is? He looks just like a Jesuit priest who came to my parish recently.

  40. Different says:

    Well, he’s definitely dressed like a Jesuit.


    The guy on the left side of the picture: “Oh crap, I forgot my rosary. Maybe, if I just pretend I have one in my hand they won’t notice.”

  41. Eufemia Budicin says:

    That guy is Angelo Gugel, a layman living in the Vatican with his family. He
    is the pope personal assistant, since John Paul II. Georg is wearing the mountain
    trousers to shorten by zip. (it’s scorching in Italy, even on the Dolomites)

  42. Curious says:

    When I said the person on the left of the pope, I meant the right side of the picture. I was about the name of the priest in the black shirt with collar and the gray pants.

  43. EW says:

    “I’ll be back.”

  44. Mac McLernon says:

    …the Papal Synchronised Rosary Recitation Team in action…

  45. Alan Stout says:

    Uh, your holiness, i believe you forgot the fatima prayer after the last glory be…

  46. Timothy James says:

    All I can think of is the calssic line from the move “They Live”

    “I came here to kick (butt) and chew bubblegum… and I’m all out of bubblegum.”

  47. Timothy James says:

    All I can think of is the classic line from the move “They Live”

    “I came here to kick (butt) and chew bubblegum… and I’m all out of bubblegum.”

  48. Timothy James says:

    Sorry about the double Post!

  49. Jason says:

    “Gentlemen, we dine in hell…”

    (Looks to me like they are marching off to hell to exorcise it, and after conquering it, will have a grand feast to celebrate the reign of Christ.)

  51. Vincenzo,

    Great work as always!

    BTW, you could use “Matrix” since St. Cyril of Alexandria referred to the Church of Rome as as the “matrix” or “womb” of Christian unity!

    God bless!


  52. R says:

    It’s “Ride of the Valkyries”, actually, not “Fight of the Valkyries”.
